Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : php (MDKSA-2006:162)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 23906
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

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.
