|Summary:||The remote host is missing an update for the 'php-pecl-apc'; package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.|
The remote host is missing an update for the 'php-pecl-apc'
package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.
The php-pecl-apc packages contain APC (Alternative PHP Cache), the
framework for caching and optimization of intermediate PHP code.
A cross-site scripting (XSS) flaw was found in the 'apc.php' script, which
provides a detailed analysis of the internal workings of APC and is shipped
as part of the APC extension documentation. A remote attacker could
possibly use this flaw to conduct a cross-site scripting attack.
Note: The administrative script is not deployed upon package installation.
It must manually be copied to the web root (the default is
'/var/www/html/', for example).
In addition, the php-pecl-apc packages have been upgraded to upstream
version 3.1.9, which provides a number of bug fixes and enhancements over
the previous version. (BZ#662655)
All users of php-pecl-apc are advised to upgrade to these updated packages,
which fix these issues and add these enhancements. If the 'apc.php' script
was previously deployed in the web root, it must manually be re-deployed to
replace the vulnerable version to resolve this issue.
php-pecl-apc on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 6),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6)
Please Install the Updated Packages.
