The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.
This update fixes a number of security issues in PHP.
A number of buffer overflow flaws were found in the PHP session
extension, the str_replace() function, and the imap_mail_compose()
function. If very long strings under the control of an attacker are
passed to the str_replace() function then an integer overflow could
occur in memory allocation. If a script uses the imap_mail_compose()
function to create a new MIME message based on an input body from an
untrusted source, it could result in a heap overflow. An attacker who
is able to access a PHP application affected by any these issues could
trigger these flaws and possibly execute arbitrary code as the
'apache' user. (CVE-2007-0906)
If unserializing untrusted data on 64-bit platforms, the
zend_hash_init() function can be forced to enter an infinite loop,
consuming CPU resources for a limited length of time, until the script
timeout alarm aborts execution of the script. (CVE-2007-0988)
If the wddx extension is used to import WDDX data from an untrusted
source, certain WDDX input packets may allow a random portion of heap
memory to be exposed. (CVE-2007-0908)
If the odbc_result_all() function is used to display data from a
database, and the contents of the database table are under the control
of an attacker, a format string vulnerability is possible which could
lead to the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2007-0909)
A one byte memory read will always occur before the beginning of a
buffer, which could be triggered for example by any use of the
header() function in a script. However it is unlikely that this would
have any effect. (CVE-2007-0907)
Several flaws in PHP could allows attackers to 'clobber' certain
super-global variables via unspecified vectors. (CVE-2007-0910)
The Fedora Project would like to thank Stefan Esser for his help
diagnosing these issues.
