Updated php-ZendFramework packages fix security vulnerabilitiesPublication date: 29 Oct 2014
Affected Mageia releases : 3 , 4
CVE: CVE-2014-8088 , CVE-2014-8089
Due to a bug in PHP's LDAP extension, when ZendFramework's Zend_ldap class is used for logins, an attacker can login as any user by using a null byte to bypass the empty password check and perform an unauthenticated LDAP bind (CVE-2014-8088). The sqlsrv PHP extension, which provides the ability to connect to Microsoft SQL Server from PHP, does not provide a built-in quoting mechanism for manually quoting values to pass via SQL queries; developers are encouraged to use prepared statements. Zend Framework provides quoting mechanisms via Zend_Db_Adapter_Sqlsrv which uses the recommended "double single quote" ('') as quoting delimiters. SQL Server treats null bytes in a query as a string terminator, allowing an attacker to add arbitrary SQL following a null byte, and thus create a SQL injection (CVE-2014-8089).
