Vulnerability Assessment Details

SUSE-SA:2005:002: php4, mod_php4

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the php4, mod_php4 package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory SUSE-SA:2005:002 (php4, mod_php4).


PHP is a well documented, widely-used scripting language often used within web
server setups.

Stefan Esser and Marcus Boerger found several buffer overflow problems in
the unserializer functions of PHP (CVE-2004-1019) and Ilia Alshanetsky
(CVE-2004-1065) found one in the exif parser. Any of them could permit
remote attackers to execute arbitrary code as the user running the PHP
interpreter.

Additionally a bug where the server would disclose php sourcecode under
some circumstances has been fixed.
