Ubuntu 4.10 : php4 vulnerabilities (USN-105-1)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 20491

Synopsis

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.

Description

Two Denial of Service vulnerabilities have been discovered in the getimagesize() function. getimagesize() uses format specific internal functions php_handle_iff() and php_handle_jpeg() which get stuck in infinite loops when certain (invalid) size parameters are read from the image. In web applications that allow users to upload arbitrary image files, a remote attacker could render the server unavailable by uploading specially crafted images.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
