<title>phpWebSite: Arbitrary command execution through XML-RPC and SQL injection</title>
phpWebSite is vulnerable to multiple issues which result in the execution
of arbitrary code and SQL injection.

<vulnerable range="lt">0.10.2_rc2</vulnerable>
phpWebSite is a web site content management system.
phpWebSite uses an XML-RPC library that improperly handles XML-RPC
requests and responses with malformed nested tags. Furthermore,
"matrix_killer" reported that phpWebSite is vulnerable to an SQL
injection attack.
<impact type="high">
A malicious remote user could exploit this vulnerability to inject
arbitrary PHP script code into eval() statements by sending a specially
crafted XML document, and also inject SQL commands to access the
underlying database directly.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All phpWebSite users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=www-apps/phpwebsite-0.10.2_rc2&quot;</code>
