Red Hat: Updated php packages fix several security issues

PHP is an HTML-embedded scripting language commonly used with the Apache HTTP Server. It was found that the hashing routine used by PHP arrays was susceptible to predictable hash collisions. If an HTTP POST request to a PHP application contained many parameters whose names map to the same hash value, a large amount of CPU time would be consumed. An integer overflow flaw was found in the PHP exif extension. On 32-bit systems, a specially-crafted image file could cause the PHP interpreter to crash or disclose portions of its memory when a PHP script tries to extract Exchangeable image file format (Exif) metadata from the image file. An insufficient input validation flaw, leading to a buffer over-read, was found in the PHP exif extension. A specially-crafted image file could cause the PHP interpreter to crash when a PHP script tries to extract Exchangeable image file format (Exif) metadata from the image file.

An integer overflow flaw was found in the PHP calendar extension. A remote attacker able to make a PHP script call SdnToJulian() with a large value could cause the PHP interpreter to crash. An off-by-one flaw was found in PHP. If an attacker uploaded a file with a specially-crafted file name it could cause a PHP script to attempt to write a file to the root (/) directory.

Updated packages are available from ftp.redhat.com.

1. Summary:

Updated php packages that fix several security issues are now available for
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having moderate
security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores,
which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability
from the CVE links in the References section.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 4 - i386, ia64, ppc, s390, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop version 4 - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 4 - i386, ia64, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 4 - i386, ia64, x86_64

3. Description:

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

It was found that the hashing routine used by PHP arrays was susceptible
to predictable hash collisions. If an HTTP POST request to a PHP
application contained many parameters whose names map to the same hash
value, a large amount of CPU time would be consumed. This flaw has been
mitigated by adding a new configuration directive, max_input_vars, that
limits the maximum number of parameters processed per request. By
default, max_input_vars is set to 1000. (CVE-2011-4885)

An integer overflow flaw was found in the PHP exif extension. On 32-bit
systems, a specially-crafted image file could cause the PHP interpreter to
crash or disclose portions of its memory when a PHP script tries to extract
Exchangeable image file format (Exif) metadata from the image file.
(CVE-2011-4566)

An insufficient input validation flaw, leading to a buffer over-read, was
found in the PHP exif extension. A specially-crafted image file could cause
the PHP interpreter to crash when a PHP script tries to extract
Exchangeable image file format (Exif) metadata from the image file.
(CVE-2011-0708)

An integer overflow flaw was found in the PHP calendar extension. A remote
attacker able to make a PHP script call SdnToJulian() with a large value
could cause the PHP interpreter to crash. (CVE-2011-1466)

An off-by-one flaw was found in PHP. If an attacker uploaded a file with a
specially-crafted file name it could cause a PHP script to attempt to write
a file to the root (/) directory. By default, PHP runs as the "apache"
user, preventing it from writing to the root directory. (CVE-2011-2202)

Red Hat would like to thank oCERT for reporting CVE-2011-4885. oCERT
acknowledges Julian Wälde and Alexander Klink as the original reporters of
CVE-2011-4885.

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

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.
