(PEAR XML-RPC, phpxmlrpc: PHP script injection vulnerability)
James Bercegay of GulfTech Security Research discovered that the
PEAR XML-RPC and phpxmlrpc libraries fail to sanatize input sent using
the 'POST' method.
A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to execute
arbitrary PHP script code by sending a specially crafted XML document
to web applications making use of these libraries.
There are no known workarounds at this time.
