SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1029932
CVE Reference:   CVE-2009-0689   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Mar 19 2014
Impact:   Execution of arbitrary code via local system, Execution of arbitrary code via network, User access via local system, User access via network
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  

Description:   A vulnerability was reported in libc. A remote or local user may be able to execute arbitrary code on the target system. PHP is affected on Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

=====================================================================
                   Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis:          Critical: php security update
Advisory ID:       RHSA-2014:0311-01
Product:           Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Advisory URL:      https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2014-0311.html
Issue date:        2014-03-18
CVE Names:         CVE-2006-7243 CVE-2009-0689 
=====================================================================

1. Summary:

Updated php packages that fix two security issues are now available for
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having Critical
security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores,
which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability
from the CVE links in the References section.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

RHEL Desktop Workstation (v. 5 client) - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server) - i386, ia64, ppc, s390x, x86_64

3. Description:

PHP is an HTML-embedded scripting language commonly used with the Apache
HTTP Server.

A buffer overflow flaw was found in the way PHP parsed floating point
numbers from their text representation. If a PHP application converted
untrusted input strings to numbers, an attacker able to provide such input
could cause the application to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code
with the privileges of the application. (CVE-2009-0689)

It was found that PHP did not properly handle file names with a NULL
character. A remote attacker could possibly use this flaw to make a PHP
script access unexpected files and bypass intended file system access
restrictions. (CVE-2006-7243)

All php users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain backported patches to correct these issues. After installing the
updated packages, the httpd daemon must be restarted for the update to
take effect.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
https://access.redhat.com/site/articles/11258

5. Bugs fixed (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/):

539784 - CVE-2009-0689 array index error in dtoa implementation of many products
662707 - CVE-2006-7243 php: paths with NULL character were considered valid
1057555 - CVE-2009-0689 php: heap overflow in floating point parsing
