Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : php (MDKSA-2007:102)

High Nessus Plugin ID 25212


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


A heap buffer overflow flaw was found in the xmlrpc extension for PHP.
A script that implements an XML-RPC server using this extension could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code as the apache user.
This flaw does not, however, affect PHP applications using the pure-PHP XML_RPC class provided via PEAR (CVE-2007-1864).

A flaw was found in the ftp extension for PHP. A script using this extension to provide access to a private FTP server and which passed untrusted script input directly to any function provided by this extension could allow a remote attacker to send arbitrary FTP commands to the server (CVE-2007-2509).

A buffer overflow flaw was found in the soap extension for PHP in the handling of an HTTP redirect response when using the SOAP client provided by the extension with an untrusted SOAP server (CVE-2007-2510).

A buffer overflow in the user_filter_factory_create() function has unknown impact and local attack vectors (CVE-2007-2511).

Updated packages have been patched to prevent this issue.


Update the affected packages.
