Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2002:017: 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 MDKSA-2002:017 (php).


Several flaws exist in various versions of PHP in the way it handles
multipart/form-data POST requests, which are used for file uploads. The
php_mime_split() function could be used by a possible hacker to execute arbitrary code
on the server. This affects both PHP4 and PHP3. The authors have fixed this in
PHP 4.1.2 and provided patches for older versions of PHP.
