Description


Gammarays has reported a security issue in Apache2Triad, which potentially can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a vulnerable system.

The problem is that the PEAR installer Go-PEAR is stored insecurely in "php/pear/go-pear.php" inside the web root. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary PHP code by configuring the installer to use a malicious proxy server when downloading files.


Solution:
Upgrade to version 1.4.4.
