Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: Smarty: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 201006-13)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: June 02, 2010
Bug(s): #212147, #243856, #270494
ID: 201006-13

Synopsis


Multiple vulnerabilities in the Smarty template engine might allow remote
attackers to execute arbitrary PHP code.


Background


Smarty is a template engine for PHP.


Affected Packages

Package: dev-php/smarty
Vulnerable: < 2.6.23
Unaffected: >= 2.6.23
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description


Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Smarty:
  • The vendor reported that the modifier.regex_replace.php plug-in
    contains an input sanitation flaw related to the ASCII NUL character
    (CVE-2008-1066).
  • The vendor reported that the
    _expand_quoted_text() function in libs/Smarty_Compiler.class.php
    contains an input sanitation flaw via multiple vectors (CVE-2008-4810,
    CVE-2008-4811).
  • Nine:Situations:Group::bookoo reported that
    the smarty_function_math() function in libs/plugins/function.math.php
    contains input sanitation flaw (CVE-2009-1669).


Impact


These issues might allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary PHP
code.


Workaround


There is no known workaround at this time.


Resolution


All Smarty users should upgrade to an unaffected version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-php/smarty-2.6.23"

NOTE: This is a legacy GLSA. Updates for all affected architectures are
available since June 2, 2009. It is likely that your system is already
no longer affected by this issue.
