Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2006:0568

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2006:0568.

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

A directory traversal vulnerability was found in PHP. Local users could
bypass open_basedir restrictions allowing remote attackers to create files
in arbitrary directories via the tempnam() function. (CVE-2006-1494)

The wordwrap() PHP function did not properly check for integer overflow in
the handling of the break parameter. An attacker who could control the
string passed to the break parameter could cause a heap overflow.

A flaw was found in the zend_hash_del() PHP function. For PHP scripts that
rely on the use of the unset() function, a remote attacker could force
variable initialization to be bypassed. This would be a security issue
particularly for installations that enable the register_globals setting.
register_globals is disabled by default in Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

Users of PHP should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
backported patches that resolve these issues.

Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
Hat Update Agent with the following command: up2date
