Mandrake Security Advisory MDVSA-2009:247 (php)

CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

CVSS Base Vector:
AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:P

Technical Details:
Multiple vulnerabilities was discovered and corrected in php: The dba_replace function in PHP 5.2.6 and 4.x allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (file truncation) via a key with the NULL byte. NOTE: this might only be a vulnerability in limited circumstances in which the attacker can modify or add database entries but does not have permissions to truncate the file (CVE-2008-7068). The php_openssl_apply_verification_policy function in PHP before 5.2.11 does not properly perform certificate validation, which has unknown impact and attack vectors, probably related to an ability to spoof certificates (CVE-2009-3291). Unspecified vulnerability in PHP before 5.2.11 has unknown impact and attack vectors related to missing sanity checks around exif processing. (CVE-2009-3292) Unspecified vulnerability in the imagecolortransparent function in PHP before 5.2.11 has unknown impact and attack vectors related to an incorrect sanity check for the color index. (CVE-2009-3293). However in Mandriva we don't use the bundled libgd source in php per default, there is a unsupported Linux Distribution Package in contrib named php-gd-bundled that eventually will get updated to pickup these fixes. This update provides a solution to these vulnerabilities. Affected: 2008.1, 2009.0, Enterprise Server 5.0

Recommendations:
To upgrade automatically use MandrakeUpdate or urpmi. The verification of md5 checksums and GPG signatures is performed automatically for you. https://secure1.securityspace.com/smysecure/catid.html?in=MDVSA-2009:247

Summary:
The remote host is missing an update to php announced via advisory MDVSA-2009:247.

Detection Type:

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
