Vulnerability Assessment Details

SUSE-SA:2005:041: php/pear XML::RPC

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the php/pear XML::RPC package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory SUSE-SA:2005:041 (php/pear XML::RPC).


A bug in the PEAR::XML_RPC library permited remote attackers to
pass arbitrary PHP code to the eval() function.

The updated php packages fix the XML::RPC bug, however several third
party PHP packages include a copy of the problematic XML::RPC code
itself and might be still vulnerable after the update.

Please check their respective websites whether the package is
vulnerable.

The following projects are known to include the XML::RPC code:
- tikiwiki
- postnuke
- drupal
- b2evolution
- b2
- phpGroupWare
- eGroupware
- Serendipity Weblog
- phpAdsNew
- Max Media Manager

This issue is tracked by the Mitre CVE ID CVE-2005-1921.

The bug in the SUSE php packages affects SUSE Linux versions from 8.2
up to 9.3, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 9 and Open Enterprise Server.

php4 on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 8 is not affected, since it was
not shipping the XML::RPC extension.
