Published: 2011-03-25 14:26:27
CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

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

Summary:
The remote host is missing an update for the 'php' Linux Distribution Package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.

Affected Versions:
php on Mandriva Linux 2009.0, Mandriva Linux 2009.0/X86_64, Mandriva Enterprise Server 5, Mandriva Enterprise Server 5/X86_64

Technical Details:
Multiple vulnerabilities has been identified and fixed in php: The _zip_name_locate function in zip_name_locate.c in the Zip extension in PHP before 5.3.6 does not properly handle a ZIPARCHIVE::FL_UNCHANGED argument, which might allow context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via an empty ZIP archive that is processed with a (1) locateName or (2) statName operation (CVE-2011-0421). exif.c in the Exif extension in PHP before 5.3.6 on 64-bit platforms performs an incorrect cast, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via an image with a crafted Image File Directory (IFD) that triggers a buffer over-read (CVE-2011-0708). Integer overflow in ext/shmop/shmop.c in PHP before 5.3.6 allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly read sensitive memory via a large third argument to the shmop_read function (CVE-2011-1092). Multiple format string vulnerabilities in phar_object.c in the phar extension in PHP 5.3.5 and earlier allow context-dependent attackers to obtain sensitive information from process memory, cause a denial of service (memory corruption), or possibly execute arbitrary code via format string specifiers in an argument to a class method, leading to an incorrect zend_throw_exception_ex call (CVE-2011-1153). Buffer overflow in the strval function in PHP before 5.3.6, when the precision configuration option has a large value, might allow context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a small numerical value in the argument (CVE-2011-1464). Integer overflow in the SdnToJulian function in the Calendar extension in PHP before 5.3.6 allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a large integer in the first argument to the cal_from_jd function (CVE-2011-1466). Unspecified vulnerability in the NumberFormatter::setSymbol (aka numfmt_set_symbol) function in the Intl extension in PHP before 5.3.6 allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via an invalid argument, a related issue to CVE-2010-4409 (CVE-2011-1467). Unspecified vulnerability in the Streams component in PHP before 5.3.6 allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) by accessing an ftp:// URL during use of an HTTP proxy with the FTP wrapper (CVE-2011-1469).

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".
