Critical Nessus Plugin ID 23906
SynopsisThe remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionThe (1) file_exists and (2) imap_reopen functions in PHP before 5.1.5 do not check for the safe_mode and open_basedir settings, which allows local users to bypass the settings (CVE-2006-4481).
Buffer overflow in the LWZReadByte function in ext/gd/libgd/gd_gif_in.c in the GD extension in PHP before 5.1.5 allows remote attackers to have an unknown impact via a GIF file with input_code_size greater than MAX_LWZ_BITS, which triggers an overflow when initializing the table array (CVE-2006-4484).
The stripos function in PHP before 5.1.5 has unknown impact and attack vectors related to an out-of-bounds read (CVE-2006-4485).
CVE-2006-4485 does not affect the Corporate3 or MNF2 versions of PHP.
Updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
