PHP Image File Format Denial Of Service Vulnerabilities

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks for image file format denial of service vulnerabilities in PHP

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server is prone to denial of service attacks.

Description :

According to its banner, the version of PHP installed on the remote
host is vulnerable to a denial of service attack due to its failure to
properly validate file data in the routines 'php_handle_iff' and
'php_handle_jpeg', which are called by the PHP function
'getimagesize'. Using a specially crafted image file, a possible hacker can
trigger an infinite loop when 'getimagesize' is called, perhaps even
remotely in the case image uploads are permited.
