Adminer is calling javascript from adminer.org when installed on a server as an typo3-extension. This is a large dataleak. Acccording to European law data stored on servers has to stay on them. What is it that adminer has to tell to adminer.org?

    Adminer before 4.0.0 loaded syntax highlighter from adminer.org. It's now bundled locally. Adminer since 1.11.0 checks version using adminer.org. It sends just the current version number, nothing else. You can verify it by checking the source codes and the network traffic.

    (I'm not sure if the typo3 extension sends anything else somewhere else, I'm not the author of it. But I don't think so.)
