Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: phpDocumentor: Function call injection (GLSA 201111-04)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: November 11, 2011
Bug(s): #213318
ID: 201111-04

Synopsis

phpDocumentor bundles Smarty which contains an input sanitation
flaw, allowing attackers to call arbitrary PHP functions.


Background

The phpDocumentor package provides automatic documenting of PHP API
directly from the source.


Affected Packages

Package: dev-php/PEAR-PhpDocumentor
Vulnerable: < 1.4.3-r1
Unaffected: >= 1.4.3-r1
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

phpDocumentor bundles Smarty with the modifier.regex_replace.php plug-in
which does not properly sanitize input related to the ASCII NUL character
in a search string.


Impact

A remote attacker could call arbitrary PHP functions via templates.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All phpDocumentor users should upgrade to the latest stable version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose
      ">=dev-php/PEAR-PhpDocumentor-1.4.3-r1"
   
NOTE: This is a legacy GLSA. Updates for all affected architectures are
available since February 12, 2011. It is likely that your system is
already no longer affected by this issue.
