Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.

Description

De Eindbazen discovered that PHP, when run with mod_cgi, will interpret a query string as command line parameters, allowing to execute arbitrary code.

Additionally, this update fixes insufficient validation of upload name which lead to corrupted $_FILES indices.

Solution

Upgrade the php5 packages.

For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in version 5.3.3-7+squeeze9.
