    Synopsis
    ========

    phpSysInfo is vulnerable to multiple issues, including a local file
    inclusion leading to information disclosure and the potential
    execution of arbitrary code.

    Background
    ==========

    phpSysInfo displays various system stats via PHP scripts.

    Affected packages
    =================

        -------------------------------------------------------------------
         Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
        -------------------------------------------------------------------
      1 www-apps/phpsysinfo < 2.4.1 >= 2.4.1

    Description
    ===========

    Christopher Kunz from the Hardened-PHP Project discovered that
    phpSysInfo is vulnerable to local file inclusion, cross-site scripting
    and a HTTP Response Splitting attacks.

    Impact
    ======

    A local attacker may exploit the file inclusion vulnerability by
    sending malicious requests, causing the execution of arbitrary code
    with the rights of the user running the web server. A remote attacker
    could exploit the vulnerability to disclose local file content.
    Furthermore, the cross-site scripting issues gives a remote attacker
    the ability to inject and execute malicious script code in the user's
    browser context or to steal cookie-based authentication credentials.
    The HTTP response splitting issue give an attacker the ability to
    perform site hijacking and cache poisoning.

    Workaround
    ==========

    There is no known workaround at this time.

    Resolution
    ==========

    All phpSysInfo users should upgrade to the latest version:

        # emerge --sync
        # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-apps/phpsysinfo-2.4.1"
