Title: phpWebSite: Arbitrary PHP execution and path disclosure (GLSA 200503-04)
Date: March 01, 2005
Updated: May 22, 2006
Remote attackers can upload and execute arbitrary PHP scripts, another flaw reveals the full path of scripts.
phpWebSite provides a complete web site content management system.
Vulnerable: < 0.10.0-r2
Unaffected: >= 0.10.0-r2
Architectures: All supported architectures
NST discovered that, when submitting an announcement, uploaded files aren't correctly checked for malicious code. They also found out that phpWebSite is vulnerable to a path disclosure.
A remote attacker can exploit this issue to upload files to a directory within the web root. By calling the uploaded script the attacker could then execute arbitrary PHP code with the rights of the web server. By passing specially crafted requests to the search module, remote attackers can also find out the full path of PHP scripts.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All phpWebSite users should upgrade to the latest available version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-apps/phpwebsite-0.10.0-r2"
