               Fedora Legacy Update Advisory

Synopsis:          Updated php packages fix security issues
Advisory ID:       FLSA:163559
Issue date:        2005-07-28
Product:           Fedora Core
Keywords:          Bugfix
CVE Names:         CAN-2005-1751 CAN-2005-1921
---------------------------------------------------------------------


---------------------------------------------------------------------
1. Topic:

Updated PHP packages that fix two security issues are now available.

PHP is an HTML-embedded scripting language commonly used with the Apache
HTTP Web server.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Fedora Core 1 - i386
Fedora Core 2 - i386

3. Problem description:

A bug was discovered in the PEAR XML-RPC Server package included in PHP.
If a PHP script is used which implements an XML-RPC Server using the
PEAR XML-RPC package, then it is possible for a remote attacker to
construct an XML-RPC request which can cause PHP to execute arbitrary
PHP commands as the 'apache' user. The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2005-1921 to
this issue.

A race condition in temporary file handling was discovered in the shtool
script installed by PHP. If a third-party PHP module which uses shtool
was compiled as root, a local user may be able to modify arbitrary
files. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org)
has assigned the name CAN-2005-1751 to this issue.

Users of PHP should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
backported fixes for these issues.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

To update all RPMs for your particular architecture, run:

rpm -Fvh [filenames]

where [filenames] is a list of the RPMs you wish to upgrade.  Only those
RPMs which are currently installed will be updated.  Those RPMs which
are not installed but included in the list will not be updated.  Note
that you can also use wildcards (*.rpm) if your current directory *only*
contains the desired RPMs.

Please note that this update is also available via yum and apt.  Many
people find this an easier way to apply updates.  To use yum issue:

yum update

or to use apt:

apt-get update; apt-get upgrade

This will start an interactive process that will result in the
appropriate RPMs being upgraded on your system.  This assumes that you
have yum or apt-get configured for obtaining Fedora Legacy content.
Please visit http://www.fedoralegacy.org/docs for directions on how to
configure yum and apt-get.

These packages are GPG signed by Fedora Legacy for security.  Our key is
available from http://www.fedoralegacy.org/about/security.php

You can verify each package with the following command:

    rpm --checksig -v <filename>

If you only wish to verify that each package has not been corrupted or
tampered with, examine only the sha1sum with the following command:

    sha1sum <filename>
