DescriptionGregory Beaver reports :
A standard feature of the PEAR installer implemented in all versions of PEAR can lead to the execution of arbitrary PHP code upon running the 'pear' command or loading the Web/Gtk frontend.
To be vulnerable, a user must explicitly install a publicly released malicious package using the PEAR installer, or explicitly install a package that depends on a malicious package.
