Description:
Multiple vulnerabilities were recently found in the PHP [1] web
scripting language:

1. The "exif_read_data" function in the EXIF module in PHP before
4.4.1 allows remote attackers to cause a Denial of Service (DoS)
through an infinite recursion via a malformed JPEG image. The
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) project assigned the id
CVE-2005-3353 [2] to the problem.

2. A Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) vulnerability in the "phpinfo"
function in PHP 4.x up to 4.4.0 and 5.x up to 5.0.5 allows remote
attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via a crafted URL
with a "stacked array assignment". The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures (CVE) project assigned the id CVE-2005-3388 [3] to the
problem.

3. The "parse_str" function in PHP 4.x up to 4.4.0 and 5.x up to
5.0.5, when called with only one parameter, allows remote attackers
to enable the "register_globals" directive via inputs that cause a
request to be terminated due to the "memory_limit" setting, which
causes PHP to set an internal flag that enables "register_globals" and
allows attackers to exploit vulnerabilities in PHP applications that
would otherwise be protected. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
(CVE) project assigned the id CVE-2005-3389 [4] to the problem.

4. The RFC1867 file upload feature in PHP 4.x up to 4.4.0 and 5.x up
to 5.0.5, when "register_globals" is enabled, allows remote attackers
to modify the "GLOBALS" array and bypass security protections of PHP
applications via a "multipart/form-data" POST request with a "GLOBALS"
"fileupload" field. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE)
project assigned the id CVE-2005-3390 [5] to the problem.

5. Multiple vulnerabilities in PHP before 4.4.1 allow remote
attackers to bypass "safe_mode" and "open_basedir" restrictions
via unknown attack vectors in the "curl" and "gd" extensions. The
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) project assigned the id
CVE-2005-3391 [6] to the problem.

6. The additionally discovered issue CVE-2005-3392 doesn't affect PHP
under the OpenPKG platforms.
