Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2007:038: 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-2007:038 (php).

PHP 5.2.0 and 4.4 permits local users to bypass safe_mode and
open_basedir restrictions via a malicious path and a null byte before a
'
' in a session_save_path argument, followed by an permited path, which
causes a parsing inconsistency in which PHP validates the permited path
but sets session.save_path to the malicious path. (CVE-2006-6383)
Buffer overflow in the gdImageStringFTEx function in gdft.c in GD
Graphics Library 2.0.33 and earlier permits remote attackers to cause a
denial of service (application crash) and possibly execute arbitrary
code via a crafted string with a JIS encoded font. PHP uses an embedded
copy of GD and may be susceptible to the same issue. (CVE-2007-0455)
Updated packages have been patched to correct these issues. Users must
restart Apache for the changes to take effect.
