Description

Updated PHP packages that fix several security issues are now available for Red Hat Application Stack. 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. These updated packages address the following vulnerabilities: Various integer overflow flaws were found in the PHP gd extension. A script that could be forced to resize images from an untrusted source could possibly allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code as the apache user. (CVE-2007-3996) A previous security update introduced a bug into PHP session cookie handling. This could allow an attacker to stop a victim from viewing a vulnerable web site if the victim has first visited a malicious web page under the control of the attacker, and that page can set a cookie for the vulnerable web site. (CVE-2007-4670) A flaw was found in the PHP money_format function. If a remote attacker was able to pass arbitrary data to the money_format function this could possibly result in an information leak or denial of service. Note that is is unusual for a PHP script to pass user-supplied data to the money_format function. (CVE-2007-4658) A flaw was found in the PHP wordwrap function. If a remote attacker was able to pass arbitrary data to the wordwrap function this could possibly result in a denial of service. (CVE-2007-3998) A bug was found in PHP session cookie handling. This could allow an attacker to create a cross-site cookie insertion attack if a victim follows an untrusted carefully-crafted URL. (CVE-2007-3799) A flaw was found in handling of dynamic changes to global variables. A script which used certain functions which change global variables could be forced to enable the register_globals configuration option, possibly resulting in global variable injection. (CVE-2007-4659) An integer overflow flaw was found in the PHP chunk_split function. If a remote attacker was able to pass arbitrary data to the third argument of chunk_split they could possibly execute arbitrary code as the apache user. Note that it is unusual for a PHP script to use the chunk_split function with a user-supplied third argument. (CVE-2007-4661) Users of PHP should upgrade to these updated packages which contain backported patches to correct these issues.
