1. Topic:

Updated php packages that fix various security issues are now available.

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

[Updated 9th March 2005]
Red Hat Linux 7.3 and Red Hat Linux 9 packages have been updated to correct a backporting bug which caused php to segfault.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Linux 7.3 - i386
Red Hat Linux 9 - i386
Fedora Core 1 - i386



3. Problem description:

An information disclosure bug was discovered in the parsing of "GPC"
variables in PHP (query strings or cookies, and POST form data). If
particular scripts used the values of the GPC variables, portions of the
memory space of an httpd child process could be revealed to the client.
The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has
assigned the name CAN-2004-0958 to this issue.

A file access bug was discovered in the parsing of "multipart/form-data"
forms, used by PHP scripts which allow file uploads. In particular
configurations, some scripts could allow a malicious client to upload
files to an arbitrary directory where the "apache" user has write
access. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org)
has assigned the name CAN-2004-0959 to this issue.

Flaws were found in shmop_write, pack, and unpack PHP functions. These
functions are not normally passed user supplied data, so would require a
malicious PHP script to be exploited. The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2004-1018 to
this issue.

Flaws including possible information disclosure, double free, and
negative reference index array underflow were found in the
deserialization code of PHP. PHP applications may use the unserialize
function on untrusted user data, which could allow a remote attacker to
gain access to memory or potentially execute arbitrary code. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the
name CAN-2004-1019 to this issue.

A flaw in the exif extension of PHP was found which lead to a stack
overflow. An attacker could create a carefully crafted image file in
such a way that if parsed by a PHP script using the exif extension it
could cause a crash or potentially execute arbitrary code. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the
name CAN-2004-1065 to this issue.

A flaw in the PHP cURL functions allows remote attackers to bypass the
open_basedir setting and read arbitrary files via a file: URL argument
to the curl_init function. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2004-1392 to this
issue.

Users of PHP should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
fixes for these issues.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

To update all RPMs for your particular architecture, run:

rpm -Fvh [filenames]

where [filenames] is a list of the RPMs you wish to upgrade. Only those
RPMs which are currently installed will be updated. Those RPMs which
are not installed but included in the list will not be updated. Note
that you can also use wildcards (*.rpm) if your current directory *only*
contains the desired RPMs.

Please note that this update is also available via yum and apt. Many
people find this an easier way to apply updates. To use yum issue:

yum update

or to use apt:

apt-get update; apt-get upgrade

This will start an interactive process that will result in the
appropriate RPMs being upgraded on your system. This assumes that you
have yum or apt-get configured for obtaining Fedora Legacy content.
Please visit http://www.fedoralegacy.org/docs for directions on how to
configure yum and apt-get.
