Debian DSA-1296-1 : php4 - missing input sanitising
Low Nessus Plugin ID 25300
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.
DescriptionIt was discovered that the ftp extension of PHP, a server-side, HTML-embedded scripting language performs insufficient input sanitising, which permits an attacker to execute arbitrary FTP commands. This requires the attacker to already have access to the FTP server.
SolutionUpgrade the PHP packages. Packages for the Sparc architectures are not yet available, due to problems on the build host. They will be provided later.
For the oldstable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in version 4.3.10-21.
For the stable distribution (etch) this problem has been fixed in version 4.4.4-8+etch3.
