Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2006:035-1: 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-2006:035-1 (php).

A flaw in the PHP gd extension in versions prior to 4.4.1 could permit a remote
attacker to bypass safe_mode and open_basedir restrictions via unknown attack


A regression was introduced with the backported patch from PHP 4.4.1 that would
prevent PHP from creating a new file with imagepng(), imagejpeg(), etc. Thanks
to Tibor Pittich for bringing this to our attention. The updated packages have
been patched to correct this issue.
