USN99-2 : php4 vulnerabilities

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
php4 vulnerabilities

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

These remote packages are missing security patches :
- libapache2-mod-php4
- php4
- php4-cgi
- php4-curl
- php4-dev
- php4-domxml
- php4-gd
- php4-ldap
- php4-mcal

Description :

USN-99-1 fixed a safe mode bypass which permited malicious PHP scripts
to circumvent path restrictions by creating a specially crafted
directory whose length exceeded the capacity of the realpath()
function (CVE-2004-1064). However, this caused severe regressions,
some applications like SquirrelMail and Gallery did not work any
more, and the package 'php4-pear' was empty. The current version
repairs this.

In addition this update fixes a crash of the PHP interpreter if
curl_init() was called with a non-string argument. Please note that
this is not security relevant since this condition usually cannot be
triggered externally.

Solution :

Upgrade to :
- libapache2-mod-php4-4.3.8-3ubuntu7.6 (Ubuntu 4.10)
- php4-4.3.8-3ubuntu7.6 (Ubuntu 4.10)
- php4-cgi-4.3.8-3ubuntu7.6 (Ubuntu 4.10)

- php4-dev-4.3.8-3ubuntu7.6 (Ubuntu 4.10)
- php4-domxml-4.3.8-3ubuntu7.6 (Ubuntu 4.10)
- php4-gd-4.3.8-3ubuntu7.6 (Ubuntu 4.10)
- php4-ldap-4.3.8-3ubuntu7.6 (Ubuntu 4.10)
- php4-mcal-4.3.8-3ubuntu7.6 (Ubuntu 4.10)
