Vulnerability Assessment Details

Fedora Core 6 2006-1169: 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-2006-1169 (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 php package contains the module which adds support for the PHP
language to Apache HTTP Server.

Update Information:

This update fixes a security vulnerability in PHP.

The Hardened-PHP Project discovered an overflow in the PHP
htmlentities() and htmlspecialchars() routines. If a PHP
script used the vulnerable functions to parse UTF-8 data, a
remote attacker sending a carefully crafted request could
trigger the overflow and potentially execute arbitrary code
as the 'apache' user. (CVE-2006-5465)
