                Mandrake Linux Security Update Advisory
________________________________________________________________________

Package name:           php
Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2002:059
Date:                   September 10th, 2002
Affected versions:      7.1, 7.2, 8.0, 8.1, Corporate Server 1.0.1
________________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

 A fifth parameter was added to PHP's mail() function in 4.0.5 that is
 not properly sanitized when the server is running in safe mode.  This
 vulnerability would allow local users and, possibly, remote attackers
 to execute arbitrary commands using shell metacharacters.

 After upgrading to these packages, execute "service httpd restart" as
 root in order to close the hole immediately.

To upgrade automatically, use MandrakeUpdate.  The verification of md5
checksums and GPG signatures is performed automatically for you.

If you want to upgrade manually, download the updated package from one
of our FTP server mirrors and upgrade with "rpm -Fvh *.rpm".  A list of
FTP mirrors can be obtained from:

   http://www.mandrakesecure.net/en/ftp.php

Please verify the update prior to upgrading to ensure the integrity of
the downloaded package.  You can do this with the command:

  rpm --checksig 

All packages are signed by MandrakeSoft for security.  You can obtain
the GPG public key of the Mandrake Linux Security Team from:

  https://www.mandrakesecure.net/RPM-GPG-KEYS

Please be aware that sometimes it takes the mirrors a few hours to
update.
