Vulnerability Assessment Details

RHSA-2006-0567: php

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the php packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Updated PHP packages that fix multiple security issues are now available
for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1

This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red
Hat Security Response Team.

PHP is an HTML-embedded scripting language commonly used with the Apache
HTTP Web server.

A flaw was found in the zend_hash_del() PHP function. For PHP scripts that
rely on the use of the unset() function, a remote attacker could force
variable initialization to be bypassed. This would be a security issue
particularly for installations that enable the "register_globals" setting.
"register_globals" is disabled by default in Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

A directory traversal vulnerability was found in PHP. Local users could
bypass open_basedir restrictions permiting remote attackers to create files
in arbitrary directories via the tempnam() function. (CVE-2006-1494)

A flaw was found in the PHP IMAP MIME header decoding function. An
attacker could craft a message with an overly long header which caused
PHP to crash. (CVE-2002-2214)

Users of PHP should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
backported patches that resolve these issues.
