Debian Security Advisory DSA-020-1                                                                       Martin Schulze

Package        : php4
Vulnerability  : remote DOS and remote information leak
Debian-specific: no
The Zend people have found a vulnerability in older versions of PHP4 (the original advisory speaks of 4.0.4 while the bugs are present in 4.0.3 as well). It is possible to specify PHP directives on a per-directory basis which leads to a remote attacker crafting an HTTP request that would cause the next page to be served with the wrong values for these directives. Also even if PHP is installed, it can be activated and deactivated on a per-directory or per-virtual host basis using the "engine=on" or "engine=off" directive. This setting can be leaked to other virtual hosts on the same machine, effectively disabling PHP for those hosts and resulting in PHP source code being sent to the client instead of being executed on the server.

We recommend you upgrade your php4 packages.

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.
You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the footer to the proper configuration.
