CentOS Errata and Security Advisory 2005:0831-001

Important CentOS 4 i386 php - security update

This CESA is for the version of php is that is included in the
centosplus repo for CentOS-4 ... this is not an update to the main
CentOS-4 repo.
----------------
Name        : php              Relocations: (not relocatable)
Version     : 5.0.4            Vendor: CentOS
Release     : 3.centos4        Build Date: 31 Aug 2005 12:15:26 AM UTC
Install Date: (not installed)  Build Host: C4i386-build
Group       : Development/Languages
Source RPM: php-5.0.4-3.centos4.src.rpm
License: The PHP License
Packager    : Johnny Hughes <johnny at centos.org>
URL         : http://www.php.net/
Summary     : The PHP HTML-embedded scripting language. (PHP: Hypertext
Preprocessor)
Description :
PHP is an HTML-embedded scripting language. PHP attempts to make it
easy for developers to write dynamically generated webpages. PHP also
offers built-in database integration for several commercial and
non-commercial database management systems, so writing a
database-enabled webpage with PHP is fairly simple. The most common
use of PHP coding is probably as a replacement for CGI scripts. The
mod_php module enables the Apache Web server to understand and process
the embedded PHP language in Web pages.
----------------
Update Information:

This update is considered important by the CentOS Development Team.

A bug was discovered in the PEAR XML-RPC Server package included in PHP.
If a PHP script is used which implements an XML-RPC Server using the
PEAR XML-RPC package, then it is possible for a remote attacker to
construct an XML-RPC request which can cause PHP to execute arbitrary
PHP commands as the 'apache' user. The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2005-2498 to
this issue.

All Users of PHP-5 from the CentOSPlus Repo should upgrade to these
updated packages.
