phpWebSite is vulnerable to multiple issues which result in the execution of arbitrary code and SQL injection.
|Package||www-apps/phpwebsite on all architectures|
|Affected versions||< 0.10.2_rc2|
|Unaffected versions||>= 0.10.2_rc2|
phpWebSite is a web site content management system.
phpWebSite uses an XML-RPC library that improperly handles XML-RPC requests and responses with malformed nested tags. Furthermore, "matrix_killer" reported that phpWebSite is vulnerable to an SQL injection attack.
A malicious remote user could exploit this vulnerability to inject arbitrary PHP script code into eval() statements by sending a specially crafted XML document, and also inject SQL commands to access the underlying database directly.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All phpWebSite users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-apps/phpwebsite-0.10.2_rc2"
