Background ========== The PEAR XML-RPC and phpxmlrpc libraries are both PHP implementations of the XML-RPC protocol. Affected packages ================= ------------------------------------------------------------------- Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected ------------------------------------------------------------------- 1 dev-php/PEAR-XML_RPC < 1.3.1 >= 1.3.1 2 dev-php/phpxmlrpc < 1.1.1 >= 1.1.1 ------------------------------------------------------------------- 2 affected packages on all of their supported architectures. ------------------------------------------------------------------- Description =========== James Bercegay of GulfTech Security Research discovered that the PEAR XML-RPC and phpxmlrpc libraries fail to sanatize input sent using the "POST" method. Impact ====== A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary PHP script code by sending a specially crafted XML document to web applications making use of these libraries. Workaround ========== There are no known workarounds at this time. Resolution ========== All PEAR-XML_RPC users should upgrade to the latest available version: # emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-php/PEAR-XML_RPC-1.3.1" All phpxmlrpc users should upgrade to the latest available version: # emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-php/phpxmlrpc-1.1.1" References ========== [ 1 ] CAN-2005-1921 http://www.cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CAN-200...
