New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 5.9

Synopsis

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

The (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.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
