Mandriva: Updated php-pear packages fix directory traversal
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Mandrake A security hole was discovered in all versions of the PEAR Installer (http://pear.php.net/PEAR). The security hole is the most serious hole found to date in the PEAR Installer, and would allow a malicious package to install files anywhere in the filesystem. The vulnerability only affects users who are installing an intentionally created package with a malicious intent.

 Problem Description:
 
 A security hole was discovered in all versions of the PEAR Installer
 (http://pear.php.net/PEAR). The security hole is the most serious
 hole found to date in the PEAR Installer, and would allow a malicious
 package to install files anywhere in the filesystem.
 
 The vulnerability only affects users who are installing an
 intentionally created package with a malicious intent.  Because the
 package is easily traced to its source, this is most likely to happen
 if a hacker were to compromise a PEAR channel server and alter a
 package to install a backdoor. In other words, it must be combined
 with other exploits to be a problem.
 
 Updated packages have been patched to prevent this issue.
