RHSA-2006-0730: php

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the php packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Updated PHP packages that fix a security issue are now available.

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

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

The Hardened-PHP Project discovered an overflow in the PHP htmlentities()
and htmlspecialchars() routines. If a PHP script used the vulnerable
functions to parse UTF-8 data, a remote attacker sending a carefully
crafted request could trigger the overflow and potentially execute
arbitrary code as the 'apache' user. (CVE-2006-5465)

Users of PHP should upgrade to these updated packages which contain a
backported patch to correct this issue.
