High Nessus Plugin ID 67471

Synopsis

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

Description

From Red Hat Security Advisory 2007:0155 :

Updated PHP packages that fix several security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 and 4.

This update has been rated as having important security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

PHP is an HTML-embedded scripting language commonly used with the Apache HTTP Web server.

A denial of service flaw was found in the way PHP processed a deeply nested array. A remote attacker could cause the PHP interpreter to crash by submitting an input variable with a deeply nested array.
(CVE-2007-1285)

A flaw was found in the way PHP's unserialize() function processed data. If a remote attacker was able to pass arbitrary data to PHP's unserialize() function, they could possibly execute arbitrary code as the apache user. (CVE-2007-1286)

A flaw was found in the way the mbstring extension set global variables. A script which used the mb_parse_str() function to set global variables could be forced to enable the register_globals configuration option, possibly resulting in global variable injection.
(CVE-2007-1583)

A double free flaw was found in PHP's session_decode() function. If a remote attacker was able to pass arbitrary data to PHP's session_decode() function, they could possibly execute arbitrary code as the apache user. (CVE-2007-1711)

A flaw was discovered in the way PHP's mail() function processed header data. If a script sent mail using a Subject header containing a string from an untrusted source, a remote attacker could send bulk e-mail to unintended recipients. (CVE-2007-1718)

A heap based buffer overflow flaw was discovered in PHP's gd extension. A script that could be forced to process WBMP images from an untrusted source could result in arbitrary code execution.
(CVE-2007-1001)

A buffer over-read flaw was discovered in PHP's gd extension. A script that could be forced to write arbitrary string using a JIS font from an untrusted source could cause the PHP interpreter to crash.
(CVE-2007-0455)

Users of PHP should upgrade to these updated packages which contain backported patches to correct these issues.

Solution

Update the affected php packages.
