Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA669] DSA-669-1 php3

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-669-1 php3

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Two vulnerabilities have been discovered in php4 which also apply to
the version of php3 in the stable Debian distribution. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following
problems:
The memory_limit functionality permits remote attackers to execute
arbitrary code under certain circumstances.
The strip_tags function does not filter null (\0) characters
within tag names when restricting input to permited tags, which
permits dangerous tags to be processed by some web browsers which
could lead to cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities.
For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 3.0.18-23.1woody2.
For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 3.0.18-27.
We recommend that you upgrade your php3 packages.
