Multiple vulnerabilities have been fixed in php.
Pardus Linux Security Advisory 2011-35  
      Date: 2011-02-12
  Severity: 3
      Type: Local

Multiple vulnerabilities have been fixed in php.


The extract function in PHP before 5.2.15 does not prevent use  of  the
EXTR_OVERWRITE parameter to overwrite (1) the GLOBALS superglobal array
and (2) the this variable, which allows context-dependent attackers  to
bypass intended access restrictions by modifying data  structures  that
were not intended to depend on external input.


Race condition in the PCNTL extension  in  PHP  before  5.3.4,  when  a
user-defined  signal handler  exists,  might  allow  context-dependent
attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption) via a  large
number of concurrent signals.


Integer overflow in the mt_rand function in PHP before 5.3.4 might make
it easier for context-dependent attackers to predict the return  values
by leveraging a script's use of a large max parameter, as  demonstrated
by a value that exceeds mt_getrandmax.

Affected packages:

  Pardus 2009:
    mod_php, all before 5.2.14-86-20
    php-cli, all before 5.2.14-86-20

    php-common, all before 5.2.14-86-20

There are update(s) for mod_php, php-cli, php-common.  You  can  update
them via Package Manager or with a single command from console:

    pisi up mod_php php-cli php-common
