Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.50502
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu 4.10 USN-66-1 (php4)
Summary:Ubuntu 4.10 USN-66-1 (php4)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to php4
announced via advisory USN-66-1.

FraMe from kernelpanik.org reported that the cURL module does not
respect open_basedir restrictions. As a result, scripts which used
cURL to open files with an user-specified path could read arbitrary
local files outside of the open_basedir directory.

Stefano Di Paola discovered a vulnerability in PHP's shmop_write()
function. Its 'offset' parameter was not checked for negative values,
which allowed an attacker to write arbitrary data to arbitrary memory
locations. A script which passed unchecked parameters to
shmop_write() could possibly be exploited to execute arbitrary code
with the privileges of the web server and to bypass safe mode
restrictions.

The following packages are affected:

libapache2-mod-php4
php4-cgi
php4-curl

Solution:
The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to
version 4:4.3.8-3ubuntu7.3. In general, a standard system upgrade is
sufficient to effect the necessary changes.
