                Linux-Mandrake Security Update Advisory

________________________________________________________________________



Package name: mod_php3

Date: September 13th, 2000

Advisory ID: MDKSA-2000:048



Affected versions: 6.1, 7.0, 7.1

________________________________________________________________________



Problem Description:



 A problem exists with PHP3 and PHP4 scripts regarding RFC 1867-based 

 file uploads.  PHP saves uploaded files in a temporary directory on the

 server, using a temporary name that is referenced as the variable  $FOO 

 where "FOO" is the name of the file input tag in the submitted form.

 Many PHP scripts process $FOO without taking measures to ensure that it

 is in fact a file that resides in the temporary directory.  Because of

 this, it is possible for a remote attacker to supply an arbitrary file

 name as the value for $FOO by submitting a standard form input tag by

 that name, and thus cause the PHP script to process arbitrary files.

 The vulnerability exists in various scripts, and not necessarily with

 PHP itself, as the script determines what actions to perform on the

 uploaded file.  The new versions of both PHP3 and PHP4 make it easier

 to secure scripts from this particular vulnerability.  They include a

 new function that makes it easy to determine whether a certain

 filename is a temporary uploaded file or not:



   /* Text whether a file is an uploaded file or not */

   is_uploaded_file($path);



 While there is no security vulnerability with PHP3 and PHP4, this

 upgrade is offered as a convenience because it includes the above

 illustrated method of file testing.

Please verify these md5 checksums of the updates prior to upgrading to

ensure the integrity of the downloaded package.  You can do this by

running the md5sum program on the downloaded package by using

"md5sum package.rpm".

To upgrade automatically, use  MandrakeUpdate .  



If you want to upgrade manually, download the updated package from one 

of our FTP server mirrors and uprade with "rpm -Uvh package_name".  



You can download the updates directly from:

  http://ftp.linux.tucows.com/pub/distributions/Mandrake/Mandrake/updates

  http://ftp.free.fr/pub/Distributions_Linux/Mandrake/updates



Or try one of the other mirrors listed at:



  http://www.linux-mandrake.com/en/ftp.php3.  



Updated packages are available in the "updates/[ver]/RPMS/" directory.  

For example, if you are looking for an updated RPM package for

Linux-Mandrake 7.1, look for it in "updates/7.1/RPMS/".  Updated source

RPMs are available as well, but you generally do not need to download

them.



Please be aware that sometimes it takes the mirrors a few hours to 

update, so if you want an immediate upgrade, please use one of the two 

above-listed mirrors.
