GLSA-200603-13 : PEAR-Auth: Potential authentication bypass
High Nessus Plugin ID 21094
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200603-13 (PEAR-Auth: Potential authentication bypass)
Matt Van Gundy discovered that PEAR-Auth did not correctly validate data passed to the DB and LDAP containers.
A remote attacker could possibly exploit this vulnerability to bypass the authentication mechanism by injecting specially crafted input to the underlying storage containers.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll PEAR-Auth users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=dev-php/PEAR-Auth-1.2.4'
