JanRain PHP OpenID library (aka php-openid) 2.2.2 allows remote
attackers to obtain sensitive information via a direct request to a
.php file, which reveals the installation path in an error message, as
demonstrated by Auth/Yadis/Yadis.php and certain other files.

Comment 1 Vincent Danen 2011-09-26 17:43:13 UTC
Created php-pear-Auth-OpenID tracking bugs for this issue

Affects: fedora-all [bug 741383]

Comment 2 Kurt Seifried 2011-09-26 18:18:28 UTC
NOTABUG: The Fedora packages install php-pear-Auth-OpenID to /usr/share/pear/Auth_OpenID/ outside the webroot and there is no mapping/etc. to expose that directory.

Also it appears this bug was originally reported by yehg.net to Google, Yehg sources:


indicate that some PHP apps ship a static copy of php-pear-Auth-OpenID within their files and expose them within the webroot.
