Description Tomas Hoger 2009-01-15 10:15:26 EST
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures assigned an identifier CVE-2008-5814 to the following vulnerability:

Cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in PHP, possibly 5.2.7 and earlier,
when display_errors is enabled, allows remote attackers to inject arbitrary web
script or HTML via unspecified vectors. NOTE: because of the lack of details,
it is unclear whether this is related to CVE-2006-0208.

Comment 1 Tomas Hoger 2009-01-15 10:17:05 EST
PHP packages as shipped in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and later set display_errors to off in the default php.ini configuration file.

Default setting for display_errors in PHP packages in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1 and 3 is on.
