Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2003:082: 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-2003:082 (php).

A vulnerability was discovered in the transparent session ID support in PHP4
prior to version 4.3.2. It did not properly escape user- supplied input prior to
inserting it in the generated web page. This could be exploited by a possible hacker
to execute embedded scripts within the context of the generated HTML
As well, two vulnerabilities had not been patched in the PHP packages included
with Mandrake Linux 8.2: The mail() function did not filter ASCII control
filters from its arguments, which could permit a possible hacker to modify the mail
message content (CVE-2002-0986). Another vulnerability in the mail() function
would permit a remote attacker to bypass safe mode restrictions and modify the
command line arguments passed to the MTA in the fifth argument (CVE-2002-0985).
All users are encouraged to upgrade to these patched packages.
