Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Update for php RHSA-2012:0546-01
Summary:The remote host is missing an update for the 'php'; package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.
Description:Summary:
The remote host is missing an update for the 'php'
package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.

Vulnerability Insight:
PHP is an HTML-embedded scripting language commonly used with the Apache
HTTP Server.

A flaw was found in the way the php-cgi executable processed command line
arguments when running in CGI mode. A remote attacker could send a
specially-crafted request to a PHP script that would result in the query
string being parsed by php-cgi as command line options and arguments. This
could lead to the disclosure of the script's source code or arbitrary code
execution with the privileges of the PHP interpreter. (CVE-2012-1823)

Red Hat is aware that a public exploit for this issue is available that
allows remote code execution in affected PHP CGI configurations. This flaw
does not affect the default configuration in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and
6 using the PHP module for Apache httpd to handle PHP scripts.

All php users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a
backported patch to resolve this issue. After installing the updated
packages, the httpd daemon must be restarted for the update to take effect.

Affected Software/OS:
php on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)

Solution:
Please Install the Updated Packages.
