Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: PHPUnit: Remote code execution (GLSA 201711-15)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: 2017-11-19
Bug(s): #635356
ID: 201711-15


A vulnerability was discovered in PHPUnit which may allow an
unauthenticated remote attacker to execute arbitrary PHP code.


PHPUnit is a programmer-oriented testing framework for PHP. It is an
instance of the xUnit architecture for unit testing frameworks.

Affected Packages

Package: dev-php/phpunit
Vulnerable: < 5.7.15-r1
Unaffected: >= 5.7.15-r1
Architectures: All supported architectures


When PHPUnit is installed in a production environment via composer and
these modules are in a web accessible directory, the eval-stdin.php file
in PHPUnit contains vulnerable statements that trigger the vulnerability.


A remote attacker could possibly execute arbitrary PHP code or cause a
Denial of Service condition.


There are several ways to fix or mitigate this vulnerability:Remove PHPUnit from the production environment.Update PHPUnit.Manually apply the patch.Disable direct access to the composer packages by placing .htaccess file
to /vendor folder.


All PHPUnit users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-php/phpunit-5.7.15-r1"
