CVE-2006-0208 PHP Cross Site Scripting (XSS) flaw
Last modified: 2008-02-23 01:02:24 EST
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #178028 +++
PHP 5.1.2 has been released:
The release announcement mentions this security fix:
* Possible cross-site scripting problems in certain error conditions.
The problem exists in the way PHP displays error messages. This issue is only
exploitable when 'display_errors' and 'html_errors' are both set to 'On' in the
PHP configuration file. When a HTML error message was being generated, the
output was not properly sanitized, which could allow an attacker to insert
arbitrary HTML, thus allowing a XSS attack.
This issue is only exploitable if 'html_errors' is on, which the configuration
file cleary states should not be used on production machines.
I have verified this flaw exists in the PHP 4.3 and 5.1 branches.
This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.
Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?
Fedora Core 4 is no longer maintained.
Setting status to "INSUFFICIENT_DATA". If you can reproduce this bug in the
current Fedora release, please reopen this bug and assign it to the
corresponding Fedora version.
