Ubuntu 6.06 LTS / 6.10 / 7.04 : php5 vulnerabilities (USN-485-1)

High Nessus Plugin ID 28086

Synopsis

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.

Description

It was discovered that the PHP xmlrpc extension did not correctly check heap memory allocation sizes. A remote attacker could send a specially crafted request to a PHP application using xmlrpc and execute arbitrary code as the Apache user. (CVE-2007-1864)

Stefan Esser discovered a flaw in the random number initialization of the PHP SOAP extension. This could lead to remote attackers being able to predict certain elements of the authentication mechanism.
(CVE-2007-2728).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
