A number of vulnerabilities have been found and corrected in PHP: improve mbfl_filt_conv_html_dec_flush() error handling in ext/mbstring/libmbfl/filters/mbfilter_htmlent.c (CVE-2008-5557). Additionally on Mandriva Linux 2009.0 and up the php-mbstring module is linked against a separate shared libmbfl library that also have been patched to address CVE-2008-5557. Directory traversal vulnerability in the ZipArchive::extractTo function in PHP 5.2.6 and earlier allows context-dependent attackers to write arbitrary files via a ZIP file with a file whose name contains .. (dot dot) sequences. (CVE-2008-5658) make sure the page_uid and page_gid get initialized properly in ext/standard/basic_functions.c. Also, init server_context before processing config variables in sapi/apache/mod_php5.c (CVE-2008-5624). enforce restrictions when merging in dir entry in sapi/apache/mod_php5.c and sapi/apache2handler/apache_config.c (CVE-2008-5625). On 2008.1, 2009.0 and cooker (2009.1) seen on x86_64 and with the latest phpmyadmin 3.1.2 software made apache+php segfault (#26274, #45864). This problem has been addressed by using -O0 for compiler optimization and by using -fno-strict-aliasing. Either the bug is in php and/or in gcc 4.3.2. Preferable just make it work as expected for now. In addition, the updated packages provide a number of bug fixes. The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues. Affected: 2008.0, 2008.1, 2009.0, Corporate 4.0
