Vulnerability Assessment Details

Fedora Core 4 2005-810: 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-2005-810 (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 the latest upstream version of the PEAR
XML_RPC package, which fixes a security issue in request
parsing in the XML_RPC Server code. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project ( has
assigned the name CVE-2005-2498 to this issue.
