 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2008:125
 http://www.mandriva.com/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________
 
 Package : php
 Date    : July 3, 2008
 Affected: Corporate 4.0
 _______________________________________________________________________
 
 Problem Description:
 
 A number of vulnerabilities have been found and corrected in PHP:
 
 A vulnerability in the chunk_split() function in PHP prior to 5.2.4
 has unknown impact and attack vectors, related to an incorrect size
 calculation (CVE-2007-4660).
 
 The htmlentities() and htmlspecialchars() functions in PHP prior to
 5.2.5 accepted partial multibyte sequences, which has unknown impact
 and attack vectors (CVE-2007-5898).
 
 The output_add_rewrite_var() function in PHP prior to 5.2.5 rewrites
 local forms in which the ACTION attribute references a non-local URL,
 which could allow a remote attacker to obtain potentially sensitive
 information by reading the requests for this URL (CVE-2007-5899).
 
 The escapeshellcmd() API function in PHP prior to 5.2.6 has unknown
 impact and context-dependent attack vectors related to incomplete
 multibyte characters (CVE-2008-2051).
 
 Weaknesses in the GENERATE_SEED macro in PHP prior to 4.4.8 and 5.2.5
 were discovered that could produce a zero seed in rare circumstances on
 32bit systems and generations a portion of zero bits during conversion
 due to insufficient precision on 64bit systems (CVE-2008-2107,
 CVE-2008-2108).
 
 The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
