Fedora 9 : maniadrive-1.2-13.fc9 / php-5.2.9-2.fc9 (2009-3848)
Critical Nessus Plugin ID 38957
SynopsisThe remote Fedora host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionUpdate to PHP 5.2.9 A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in PHP's mbstring extension. A remote attacker able to pass arbitrary input to a PHP script using mbstring conversion functions could cause the PHP interpreter to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2008-5557) A directory traversal flaw was found in PHP's ZipArchive::extractTo function. If PHP is used to extract a malicious ZIP archive, it could allow an attacker to write arbitrary files anywhere the PHP process has write permissions. (CVE-2008-5658) A buffer overflow flaw was found in PHP's imageloadfont function. If a PHP script allowed a remote attacker to load a carefully crafted font file, it could cause the PHP interpreter to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2008-3658) A memory disclosure flaw was found in the PHP gd extension's imagerotate function. A remote attacker able to pass arbitrary values as the 'background color' argument of the function could, possibly, view portions of the PHP interpreter's memory. (CVE-2008-5498) A cross-site scripting flaw was found in a way PHP reported errors for invalid cookies. If the PHP interpreter had 'display_errors' enabled, a remote attacker able to set a specially crafted cookie on a victim's system could possibly inject arbitrary HTML into an error message generated by PHP.
(CVE-2008-5814) A flaw was found in the handling of the 'mbstring.func_overload' configuration setting. A value set for one virtual host, or in a user's .htaccess file, was incorrectly applied to other virtual hosts on the same server, causing the handling of multibyte character strings to not work correctly. (CVE-2009-0754) A flaw was found in PHP's json_decode function. A remote attacker could use this flaw to create a specially crafted string which could cause the PHP interpreter to crash while being decoded in a PHP script.
(CVE-2009-1271) A flaw was found in the use of the uw-imap library by the PHP 'imap' extension. This could cause the PHP interpreter to crash if the 'imap' extension was used to read specially crafted mail messages with long headers.
