Fedora Core 3 : php-4.3.11-2.6 (2005-517)

High Nessus Plugin ID 18624

Synopsis

The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.

Description

This update includes the PEAR XML_RPC 1.3.1 package, which fixes a security issue in the XML_RPC server implementation. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2005-1921 to this issue.

The bundled version of shtool is also updated, to fix some temporary file handling races. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2005-1751 to this issue.

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.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
