There were several serious holes just released in 4.3.9 of PHP. That is
a possible attack vector from what you are saying. Get 4.3.10 of PHP for
sure. As far as what this does or what all it would do, someone needs to
get a good catch of it.

Anyone ready to setup a box? =)

Subject: [Full-disclosure] Possible apache2/php 4.3.9 worm

Some of the sites I administer were alledgedly hit by a worm 
last night.
It overwrote all .php/.html files that were owner writable 
and owned by apache.  The worm put the following html in 
place of what was there:
<HEAD>  <TITLE>This site is defaced!!!</TITLE>  </HEAD> <BODY 
bgcolor="#000000" text="#FF0000"> <H1>This site is 
defaced!!!</H1> <HR> <ADDRESS><b>NeverEverNoSanity WebWorm 
generation 17.</b></ADDRESS> </BODY> </HTML>

We were running apache 2.0.52 and php 4.3.9. Have any of you 
encounted this before?  Also is there anything I should be 
aware of such as a possible binary that may have been 
dropped?  Could this have been accomplised by the upload path 
traversal vulnerability?  Google returns nothing.
