Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : php (MDVSA-2009:304)

High Nessus Plugin ID 42918

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: 7.4

Synopsis

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

Description

Some vulnerabilities were discovered and corrected in php :

PHP 5.2.11, and 5.3.x before 5.3.1, does not restrict the number of temporary files created when handling a multipart/form-data POST request, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (resource exhaustion), and makes it easier for remote attackers to exploit local file inclusion vulnerabilities, via multiple requests, related to lack of support for the max_file_uploads directive (CVE-2009-4017).

The proc_open function in ext/standard/proc_open.c in PHP before 5.2.11 and 5.3.x before 5.3.1 does not enforce the (1) safe_mode_allowed_env_vars and (2) safe_mode_protected_env_vars directives, which allows context-dependent attackers to execute programs with an arbitrary environment via the env parameter, as demonstrated by a crafted value of the LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable (CVE-2009-4018).

The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
