Ubuntu 4.10 / 5.04 : php4 vulnerability (USN-207-1)

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2005-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2006-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related
patches.

Description :

A bug has been found in the handling of the open_basedir directive
handling. Contrary to the specification, the value of open_basedir was
handled as a prefix instead of a proper directory name even if it was
terminated by a slash ('/'). For example, this allowed PHP scripts to
access the directory /home/user10 when open_basedir was configured to
'/home/user1/'.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

Low / CVSS Base Score : 2.1
(CVSS2#AV:L/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:N/A:N)
