Description

A vulnerability was discovered in the transparent session ID support in PHP4 prior to version 4.3.2. It did not properly escape user- supplied input prior to inserting it in the generated web page. This could be exploited by an attacker to execute embedded scripts within the context of the generated HTML (CVE-2003-0442).

As well, two vulnerabilities had not been patched in the PHP packages included with Mandrake Linux 8.2: The mail() function did not filter ASCII control filters from its arguments, which could allow an attacker to modify the mail message content (CVE-2002-0986). Another vulnerability in the mail() function would allow a remote attacker to bypass safe mode restrictions and modify the command line arguments passed to the MTA in the fifth argument (CVE-2002-0985).

All users are encouraged to upgrade to these patched packages.

Update :

The packages for Mandrake Linux 8.2 and Multi-Network Firewall 8.2, due to improper BuildRequires did not include mail() support. This update corrects that problem.
