Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : php (MDVSA-2009:066)

This script is Copyright (C) 2009-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

PHP 4.4.4, 5.1.6, and other versions, when running on Apache, allows
local users to modify behavior of other sites hosted on the same web
server by modifying the mbstring.func_overload setting within
.htaccess, which causes this setting to be applied to other virtual
hosts on the same server (CVE-2009-0754).

The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

Low / CVSS Base Score : 2.1
(CVSS2#AV:L/AC:L/Au:N/C:N/I:P/A:N)
CVSS Temporal Score : 1.8
(CVSS2#E:ND/RL:OF/RC:C)
