Vulnerability Assessment Details
phpWebSite: Arbitrary PHP execution and path disclosure
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200503-04
(phpWebSite: Arbitrary PHP execution and path disclosure)
NST discovered that, when submitting an announcement, uploaded
files aren't correctly checked for malicious code. They also found out
that phpWebSite is vulnerable to a path disclosure.
A remote attacker can exploit this issue to upload files to a
directory within the web root. By calling the uploaded script the
attacker could then execute arbitrary PHP code with the rights of the
web server. By passing specially crafted requests to the search module,
remote attackers can also find out the full path of PHP scripts.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All phpWebSite users should upgrade to the latest available
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-apps/phpwebsite-0.10.0-r2"
