Yellow Dog Linux Security Announcement -------------------------------------- Package: php Issue Date: Jul 10,2003 Priority: medium Advisory ID: YDU-20030710-2 1. Topic: Updated php packages are available. 2. Problem: "PHP is an HTML-embedded scripting language commonly used with the Apache HTTP server. This update contains fixes for a number of bugs that include the use of a PHP script as an ErrorDocument and possible POST body corruption in some configurations. Also included is a fix for a minor security problem. In PHP version 4.3.1 and earlier, when transparent session ID support is enabled using the "session.use_trans_sid" option, the session ID is not escaped before use. This allows a Cross Site Scripting attack. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project ( has assigned the name CAN-2003-0442 to this issue. All users of PHP are advised to upgrade to these erratum packages, which contain back-ported patches to correct these issues." From Red Hat Advisory 3. Solution: a) Updating via yum... We suggest that you use the yum program to keep your system up-to-date. The following command(s) will retrieve and install the fixed version of this update onto your system: yum update php b) Updating manually...
