<description>
<p>
James Bercegay of GulfTech Security Research discovered that the
PEAR XML-RPC and phpxmlrpc libraries fail to sanatize input sent using
the "POST" method.
</p>
</description>
<impact type="high">
<p>
A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to execute
arbitrary PHP script code by sending a specially crafted XML document
to web applications making use of these libraries.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
There are no known workarounds at this time.
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>
All PEAR-XML_RPC users should upgrade to the latest available
version:
</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=dev-php/PEAR-XML_RPC-1.3.1&quot;</code>
<p>
All phpxmlrpc users should upgrade to the latest available
version:
