Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2006:162: 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-2006:162 (php).

The (1) file_exists and (2) imap_reopen functions in PHP before 5.1.5
do not check for the safe_mode and open_basedir settings, which permits
local users to bypass the settings (CVE-2006-4481).
Buffer overflow in the LWZReadByte function in ext/gd/libgd/gd_gif_in.c
in the GD extension in PHP before 5.1.5 permits remote attackers to have
an unknown impact via a GIF file with input_code_size greater than
MAX_LWZ_BITS, which triggers an overflow when initializing the table
array (CVE-2006-4484).
The stripos function in PHP before 5.1.5 has unknown impact and attack
vectors related to an out-of-bounds read (CVE-2006-4485).
CVE-2006-4485 does not affect the Corporate3 or MNF2 versions of PHP.
Updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
