|Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
Title: phpDocumentor: Function call injection (GLSA 201111-04)
Date: November 11, 2011
phpDocumentor bundles Smarty which contains an input sanitation
flaw, allowing attackers to call arbitrary PHP functions.
The phpDocumentor package provides automatic documenting of PHP API
directly from the source.
Vulnerable: < 1.4.3-r1
Unaffected: >= 1.4.3-r1
Architectures: All supported architectures
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.
A remote attacker could call arbitrary PHP functions via templates.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All phpDocumentor users should upgrade to the latest stable version:
NOTE: This is a legacy GLSA. Updates for all affected architectures are
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose
available since February 12, 2011. It is likely that your system is
already no longer affected by this issue.
