Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security

Description :

A vulnerability was discovered where the html_entity_decode() function
would return a chunk of memory with length equal to the string
supplied, which could include php code, php ini data, other user data,
etc. Note that by default, Corporate 3.0 and Mandriva Linux LE2005
ship with magic_quotes_gpc on which seems to protect against this
vulnerability 'out of the box' but users are encourages to upgrade

Once the upgraded packages have been installed, users will need to
issue a 'service httpd restart' in order for the fixed packages to be
properly loaded.

Updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.
