Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : php (MDVSA-2009:021)

This script is Copyright (C) 2009-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

A buffer overflow in the imageloadfont() function in PHP allowed
context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and
potentially execute arbitrary code via a crafted font file
(CVE-2008-3658).

A buffer overflow in the memnstr() function allowed context-dependent
attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and potentially execute
arbitrary code via the delimiter argument to the explode() function
(CVE-2008-3659).

PHP, when used as a FastCGI module, allowed remote attackers to cause
a denial of service (crash) via a request with multiple dots preceding
the extension (CVE-2008-3660).

An array index error in the imageRotate() function in PHP allowed
context-dependent attackers to read the contents of arbitrary memory
locations via a crafted value of the third argument to the function
for an indexed image (CVE-2008-5498).

The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 7.5
