Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : php (MDVSA-2008:127)

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 38042

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: 6.7

Synopsis

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

Description

A number of vulnerabilities have been found and corrected in PHP :

The htmlentities() and htmlspecialchars() functions in PHP prior to 5.2.5 accepted partial multibyte sequences, which has unknown impact and attack vectors (CVE-2007-5898).

The output_add_rewrite_var() function in PHP prior to 5.2.5 rewrites local forms in which the ACTION attribute references a non-local URL, which could allow a remote attacker to obtain potentially sensitive information by reading the requests for this URL (CVE-2007-5899).

php-cgi in PHP prior to 5.2.6 does not properly calculate the length of PATH_TRANSLATED, which has unknown impact and attack vectors (CVE-2008-0599).

The escapeshellcmd() API function in PHP prior to 5.2.6 has unknown impact and context-dependent attack vectors related to incomplete multibyte characters (CVE-2008-2051).

Weaknesses in the GENERATE_SEED macro in PHP prior to 4.4.8 and 5.2.5 were discovered that could produce a zero seed in rare circumstances on 32bit systems and generations a portion of zero bits during conversion due to insufficient precision on 64bit systems (CVE-2008-2107, CVE-2008-2108).

The IMAP module in PHP uses obsolete API calls that allow context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via a long IMAP request (CVE-2008-2829).

In addition, this update also corrects an issue with some float to string conversions.

The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
