Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDKSA-2007:110
http://www.mandriva.com/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : php-pear
Date : June 4, 2007
Affected: 2007.0, 2007.1, Corporate 3.0, Corporate 4.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

A security hole was discovered in all versions of the PEAR Installer
(http://pear.php.net/PEAR). The security hole is the most serious
hole found to date in the PEAR Installer, and would allow a malicious
package to install files anywhere in the filesystem.

The vulnerability only affects users who are installing an
intentionally created package with a malicious intent. Because the
package is easily traced to its source, this is most likely to happen
if a hacker were to compromise a PEAR channel server and alter a
package to install a backdoor. In other words, it must be combined
with other exploits to be a problem.

Updated packages have been patched to prevent this issue.
