Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDKSA-2007:090

Package : php
Date : April 18, 2007
Affected: 2007.1
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

A heap-based buffer overflow vulnerability was found 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 DoS flaw was found in how PHP processed a deeply nested array.
A remote attacker could cause the PHP intrerpreter to creash
by submitting an input variable with a deeply nested array
(CVE-2007-1285).

The internal filter module in PHP in certain instances did not properly
strip HTML tags, which allowed a remote attacker conduct cross-site
scripting (XSS) attacks (CVE-2007-1454).

A vulnerability in the way the mbstring extension set global variables
was discovered where a script using the mb_parse_str() function to
set global variables could be forced to to enable the register_globals
configuration option, possibly resulting in global variable injection
(CVE-2007-1583).

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

Updated packages have been patched to correct these issues. Also note
that the default use of Suhosin helped to protect against some of
these issues prior to patching.
