  <title>PEAR::MDB2: Information disclosure</title>
    A vulnerability when handling database input in PEAR::MDB2 allows remote
    attackers to obtain sensitive information.

    PEAR::MDB2 is a database abstraction layer for PHP aimed to provide a
    common API for all supported relational database management systems. A
    LOB ("large object") is a database field holding binary data.
    priyadi discovered that the request to store a URL string as a LOB is
    treated as a request to retrieve and store the contents of the URL.
  <impact type="normal">
    If an application using PEAR::MDB2 allows input of LOB values via a web
    form, remote attackers could use the application as an indirect proxy
    or obtain sensitive information, including "file://" URLs local to the
    web server.
    As a workaround, manually filter input before storing it as a LOB in
    All PEAR::MDB2 users should upgrade to the latest version:
    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=dev-php/PEAR-MDB2-2.5.0_alpha1&quot;</code>
