Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : php (MDVSA-2013:016)

Synopsis :

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

Description :

Multiple vulnerabilities has been discovered and corrected in php :

PHP does not validate the configration directive soap.wsdl_cache_dir
before writing SOAP wsdl cache files to the filesystem. Thus an
attacker is able to write remote wsdl files to arbitrary locations
(CVE-2013-1635).

PHP allows the use of external entities while parsing SOAP wsdl files
which allows an attacker to read arbitrary files. If a web application
unserializes user-supplied data and tries to execute any method of it,
an attacker can send serialized SoapClient object initialized in
non-wsdl mode which will make PHP to parse automatically remote
XML-document specified in the location option parameter
(CVE-2013-1643).

The updated packages have been upgraded to the 5.3.22 version which is
not vulnerable to these issues.

Additionally, some packages which requires so has been rebuilt for
php-5.3.22.
