Vulnerability Assessment Summary
phpSysInfo: Multiple vulnerabilities

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200511-18
(phpSysInfo: Multiple vulnerabilities)

Christopher Kunz from the Hardened-PHP Project discovered
that phpSysInfo is vulnerable to local file inclusion, cross-site
scripting and a HTTP Response Splitting attacks.


A local attacker may exploit the file inclusion vulnerability by
sending malicious requests, causing the execution of arbitrary code
with the rights of the user running the web server. A remote attacker
could exploit the vulnerability to disclose local file content.
Furthermore, the cross-site scripting issues gives a remote attacker
the ability to inject and execute malicious script code in the user's
browser context or to steal cookie-based authentication credentials.
The HTTP response splitting issue give a possible hacker the ability to
perform site hijacking and cache poisoning.


There is no known workaround at this time.


All phpSysInfo users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-apps/phpsysinfo-2.4.1"

Network Security Threat Level: Medium
