Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA346] DSA-346-1 phpsysinfo

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-346-1 phpsysinfo

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Albert Puigsech Galicia ripe@7a69ezine.org reported that phpsysinfo,
a web-based program to display status information about the system,
contains two vulnerabilities which could permit local files to be read,
or arbitrary PHP code to be executed, under the rights of the web
server process (usually www-data). These vulnerabilities require
access to a writable directory on the system in order to be exploited.
For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.0-3woody1.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.
See Debian bug #200543.
We recommend that you update your phpsysinfo package.
