    Updated on:        2005-01-19

    1. Summary:
    
    Updated php packages that fix various security issues are now
    available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1.
    
    2. Relevant releases/architectures:
    
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS (Advanced Server) version 2.1 - i386, ia64
    Red Hat Linux Advanced Workstation 2.1 - ia64
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 2.1 - i386
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 2.1 - i386
    
    3. Problem description:
    
    PHP is an HTML-embedded scripting language commonly used with the Apache
    HTTP Web server.
    
    A double-free bug was found in the deserialization code of PHP. PHP
    applications use the unserialize function on untrusted user data, which
    could allow a remote attacker to gain access to memory or potentially
    execute arbitrary code.  The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
    (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2004-1019 to this issue.
    
    Flaws were found in the pack and unpack PHP functions. These functions
    do not normally pass user supplied data, so they would require a malicious
    PHP script to be exploited. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
    project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2004-1018 to this issue.
    
    A bug was discovered in the initialization of the OpenSSL library, such
    that the curl extension could not be used to perform HTTP requests over SSL
    unless the php-imap package was installed.
    
    Users of PHP should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain fixes
    for these issues.
    
    4. Solution:
    
    Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released
    errata relevant to your system have been applied.  Use Red Hat
    Network to download and update your packages.  To launch the Red Hat
    Update Agent, use the following command:
    
        up2date
    
    For information on how to install packages manually, refer to the
    following Web page for the System Administration or Customization
    guide specific to your system:
