Vulnerability Assessment Details

SUSE-SA:2002:036: mod_php4

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the mod_php4 package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory SUSE-SA:2002:036 (mod_php4).


PHP is a well documented and widely used web programming language.
If a PHP script runs in 'safe mode' several restrictions are applied
to it including limits on execution of external programs.

A possible hacker can pass shell meta-characters or sendmail(8) command line
options via the 5th argument (introduced in version 4.0.5) of the mail()
function to execute shell commands or control the behavior of sendmail(8).

The CRLF injection vulnerabilities in fopen(), file(), header(), ...
permit a possible hacker to bypass ACLs or trigger cross-side scripting.

The mod_php4 package is not installed by default.
A temporary fix is not known.

Please note, that the following packages were rebuild too:
- mod_php4-core
- mod_php4-aolserver
- mod_php4-devel
- mod_php4-servlet
- mod_php4-roxen

Please download the update package for your distribution and verify its
integrity by the methods listed in section 3) of this announcement.
Then, install the package using the command 'rpm -Fhv file.rpm' to apply
the update.
