Mandrake: php multiple vulnerabilities fix Print E-mail
User Rating:      How can I rate this item?
Posted by Joe Shakespeare   
Mandrake A number of vulnerabilities in PHP versions prior to 4.3.10 were discovered by Stefan Esser. Some of these vulnerabilities were not deemed to be severe enough to warrant CVE names, however the packages provided, with the exception of the Corporate Server 2.1 packages, include fixes for all of the vulnerabilities, thanks to the efforts of the OpenPKG team who extracted and backported the fixes.


                 Mandrakelinux Security Update Advisory

 Package name:           php
 Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2004:151
 Date:                   December 17th, 2004

 Affected versions:      10.0, 10.1, 9.2, Corporate Server 2.1

 Problem Description:

 A number of vulnerabilities in PHP versions prior to 4.3.10 were
 discovered by Stefan Esser.  Some of these vulnerabilities were not
 deemed to be severe enough to warrant CVE names, however the packages
 provided, with the exception of the Corporate Server 2.1 packages,
 include fixes for all of the vulnerabilities, thanks to the efforts of
 the OpenPKG team who extracted and backported the fixes.

 The vulnerabilities fixed in all provided packages include a fix for
 a possible information disclosure, double free, and negative reference
 index array underflow in deserialization code (CAN-2004-1019).  As
 well, the exif_read_data() function suffers from an overflow on a long
 sectionname; this vulnerability was discovered by Ilia Alshanetsky

 The other fixes that appear in Mandrakelinux 9.2 and newer packages
 include a fix for out of bounds memory write access in shmop_write()
 and integer overflow/underflows in the pack() and unpack() functions.
 The addslashes() function did not properly escape "\0" correctly. A
 directory bypass issue existed in safe_mode execution.  There is an
 issue of arbitrary file access through path truncation.  Finally, the
 "magic_quotes_gpc" functionality could lead to one level directory
 traversal with file uploads.
