Fedora Core 6 : php-5.1.6-3.7.fc6 (2007-709)

This script is Copyright (C) 2007-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update fixes a number of security issues in PHP :

- various integer overflow flaws were found in the PHP gd
extension. A script that could be forced to resize
images from an untrusted source could possibly allow a
remote attacker to execute arbitrary code as the apache
user. (CVE-2007-3996)

- an integer overflow flaw was found in the PHP
chunk_split function. If a remote attacker was able to
pass arbitrary data to the third argument of chunk_split
they could possibly execute arbitrary code as the apache
user. Note that it is unusual for a PHP script to use
the chunk_script function with a user-supplied third
argument. (CVE-2007-2872)

- a previous security update introduced a bug into PHP
session cookie handling. This could allow an attacker to
stop a victim from viewing a vulnerable website if the
victim has first visited a malicious web page under the
control of the attacker, and that page can set a cookie
for the vulnerable website. (CVE-2007-4670)

- a flaw was found in the PHP money_format function. If a
remote attacker was able to pass arbitrary data to the
money_format function this could possibly result in an
information leak or denial of service. Note that is is
unusual for a PHP script to pass user-supplied data to
the money_format function. (CVE-2007-4658)

- a flaw was found in the PHP wordwrap function. If a
remote attacker was able to pass arbitrary data to the
wordwrap function this could possibly result in a denial
of service. (CVE-2007-3998)

- a bug was found in PHP session cookie handling. This
could allow an attacker to create a cross-site cookie
insertion attack if a victim follows an untrusted
carefully-crafted URL. (CVE-2007-3799)

- an infinite-loop flaw was discovered in the PHP gd
extension. A script that could be forced to process PNG
images from an untrusted source could allow a remote
attacker to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2007-2756)

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.
