Vulnerability Assessment Details

Fedora Core 4 2005-1062: php

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the php package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory FEDORA-2005-1062 (php).

PHP is an HTML-embedded scripting language. PHP attempts to make it
easy for developers to write dynamically generated webpages. PHP also
offers built-in database integration for several commercial and
non-commercial database management systems, so writing a
database-enabled webpage with PHP is fairly simple. The most common
use of PHP coding is probably as a replacement for CGI scripts. The
mod_php module enables the Apache Web server to understand and process
the embedded PHP language in Web pages.

Update Information:

This update includes several security fixes:

- fixes for prevent malicious requests from overwriting the
GLOBALS array (CVE-2005-3390)

- a fix to stop the parse_str() function from enabling the
register_globals setting (CVE-2005-3389)

- fixes for Cross-Site Scripting flaws in the phpinfo()
output (CVE-2005-3388)

- a fix for a denial of service (process crash) in EXIF
image parsing (CVE-2005-3353)
