Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2006:091: 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-2006:091 (php).



An integer overflow in the wordwrap() function could permit attackers

to execute arbitrary code via certain long arguments that cause a small

buffer to be allocated, triggering a heap-based buffer overflow

(CVE-2006-1990).



The substr_compare() function in PHP 5.x and 4.4.2 could permit

attackers to cause a Denial of Service (memory access violation)

via an out-of-bounds offset argument (CVE-2006-1991).



The second vulnerability only affects Mandriva Linux 2006
earlier

versions shipped with older versions of PHP that do not contain the

substr_compare() function.
