FreeBSD : yii -- Remote arbitrary PHP code execution (5a35bc56-7027-11e4-a4a3-001999f8d30b)

This script is Copyright (C) 2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.

Description :

Yii PHP Framework developers report :

We are releasing Yii 1.1.15 to fix a security issue found in 1.1.14.
We urge all 1.1.14 users to upgrade their Yii to this latest release.
Note that the issue only affects 1.1.14. All previous releases are not
affected. Upgrading to this release from 1.1.14 is very safe and will
not break your existing code.

The vulnerability is in the CDetailView widget. When a Yii application
uses this widget and configures the 'value' property of a CDetailView
attribute using end user inputs, it may allow attackers to potentially
execute arbitrary PHP scripts on the server. We are not showing how to
exploit it here to allow users to upgrade before details about the
exploit become publicly known. To our knowledge the details of this
issue are only known to core team members.
