go-pear.php PEAR PHP proxy redirection
|gopear-proxy-redirection (24076)||Medium Risk|
The go-pear.php script, when located inside the Web root directory, could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on the server. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by supplying a malicious proxy server to the go-pear.php script, which would redirect the server to an attacker-controlled server from which to install PEAR packages.
Note: The go-pear.php script is installed by default with the Apache2Triad package.
Upgrade to the latest version of Apache2Triad (1.4.4 or later), available from the Apache2Triad Web site. See References.
