Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: PEAR XML-RPC, phpxmlrpc: PHP script injection vulnerability (GLSA 200507-01)
Severity: high
Exploitable: remote
Date: July 03, 2005
Bug(s): #97399, #97629
ID: 200507-01

Synopsis

The PEAR XML-RPC and phpxmlrpc libraries allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary PHP script commands.

Background

The PEAR XML-RPC and phpxmlrpc libraries are both PHP implementations of the XML-RPC protocol.

Affected Packages

Package: dev-php/PEAR-XML_RPC
Vulnerable: < 1.3.1
Unaffected: >= 1.3.1
Architectures: All supported architectures

Package: dev-php/phpxmlrpc
Vulnerable: < 1.1.1
Unaffected: >= 1.1.1
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

James Bercegay of GulfTech Security Research discovered that the PEAR XML-RPC and phpxmlrpc libraries fail to sanatize input sent using the "POST" method.

Impact

A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary PHP script code by sending a specially crafted XML document to web applications making use of these libraries.

Workaround

There are no known workarounds at this time.

Resolution

All PEAR-XML_RPC users should upgrade to the latest available version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-php/PEAR-XML_RPC-1.3.1"
All phpxmlrpc users should upgrade to the latest available version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-php/phpxmlrpc-1.1.1"
