Fedora Core 6 : php-5.1.6-3.6.fc6 (2007-503)

Synopsis :

The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update fixes a number of security issues in PHP.

A heap buffer overflow flaw was found in the PHP 'xmlrpc' extension. A
PHP script which implements an XML-RPC server using this extension
could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code as the
'apache' user. Note that this flaw does not affect PHP applications
using the pure-PHP XML_RPC class provided in /usr/share/pear.
(CVE-2007-1864)

A flaw was found in the PHP 'ftp' extension. If a PHP script used this
extension to provide access to a private FTP server, and passed
untrusted script input directly to any function provided by this
extension, a remote attacker would be able to send arbitrary FTP
commands to the server. (CVE-2007-2509)

A buffer overflow flaw was found in the PHP 'soap' extension,
regarding the handling of an HTTP redirect response when using the
SOAP client provided by this extension with an untrusted SOAP server.
No mechanism to trigger this flaw remotely is known. (CVE-2007-2510)

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