Ubuntu 6.06 LTS / 6.10 / 7.04 : php5 vulnerabilities (USN-485-1)

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2007-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2007-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

It was discovered that the PHP xmlrpc extension did not correctly
check heap memory allocation sizes. A remote attacker could send a
specially crafted request to a PHP application using xmlrpc and
execute arbitrary code as the Apache user. (CVE-2007-1864)

Stefan Esser discovered a flaw in the random number initialization of
the PHP SOAP extension. This could lead to remote attackers being able
to predict certain elements of the authentication mechanism.
(CVE-2007-2728).

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.
