||local and remote
All supported architectures
phpSysInfo is vulnerable to multiple issues, including a local file
inclusion leading to information disclosure and the potential execution of
phpSysInfo displays various system stats via PHP scripts.
Christopher Kunz from the Hardened-PHP Project discovered
that phpSysInfo is vulnerable to local file inclusion, cross-site
scripting and a HTTP Response Splitting attacks.
A local attacker may exploit the file inclusion vulnerability by
sending malicious requests, causing the execution of arbitrary code
with the rights of the user running the web server. A remote attacker
could exploit the vulnerability to disclose local file content.
Furthermore, the cross-site scripting issues gives a remote attacker
the ability to inject and execute malicious script code in the user's
browser context or to steal cookie-based authentication credentials.
The HTTP response splitting issue give an attacker the ability to
perform site hijacking and cache poisoning.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All phpSysInfo users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code Listing 3.1: Resolution
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-apps/phpsysinfo-2.4.1"
