Mandriva Linux Security Advisory 2010:008: php


Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in php:

The zend_restore_ini_entry_cb function in zend_ini.c in PHP 5.3.0,
5.2.10, and earlier versions allows context-specific attackers to
obtain sensitive information (memory contents) and cause a PHP crash
by using the ini_set function to declare a variable, then using the
ini_restore function to restore the variable (CVE-2009-2626).

The htmlspecialchars function in PHP before 5.2.12 does not properly
handle (1) overlong UTF-8 sequences, (2) invalid Shift_JIS sequences,
and (3) invalid EUC-JP sequences, which allows remote attackers to
conduct cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks by placing a crafted byte
sequence before a special character (CVE-2009-4142).

Packages for 2008.0 are provided for Corporate Desktop 2008.0

The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues…
