(PEAR XML-RPC, phpxmlrpc: New PHP script injection vulnerability)
Stefan Esser of the Hardened-PHP Project discovered that the PEAR
XML-RPC and phpxmlrpc libraries were improperly handling XMLRPC
requests and responses with malformed nested tags.
A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to inject
arbitrary PHP script code into eval() statements by sending a specially
crafted XML document to web applications making use of these libraries.
There are no known workarounds at this time.
