Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Synopsis: Moderate: php security update

PHP is an HTML-embedded scripting language commonly used with the Apache

HTTP Server.

An input validation flaw was discovered in the PHP session serializer. If a

PHP script generated session variable names from untrusted user input, a

remote attacker could use this flaw to inject an arbitrary variable into

the PHP session. (CVE-2010-3065)

An information leak flaw was discovered in the PHP var_export() function

implementation. If some fatal error occurred during the execution of this

function (such as the exhaustion of memory or script execution time limit),

part of the function’s output was sent to the user as script output,

possibly leading to the disclosure of sensitive information.
