Vulnerability Assessment Details

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory FEDORA-2005-518 (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.
This update includes the PEAR XML_RPC 1.3.1 package, which fixes a
security issue in the XML_RPC server implementation. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the
name CVE-2005-1921 to this issue.
The bundled version of shtool is also updated, to fix some temporary
file handling races. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
(cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2005-1751 to this issue.
Bug fixes for the dom, ldap, and gd extensions are also included in
