SUSE-SA:2005:051: php4,php5

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the php4,php5 package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory SUSE-SA:2005:051 (php4,php5).


This update fixes the following security issues in the PHP scripting
language.

- Bugs in the PEAR::XML_RPC library permited remote attackers to pass
arbitrary PHP code to the eval() function (CVE-2005-1921,
CVE-2005-2498).

The Pear::XML_RPC library is not used by default in SUSE Linux, but
might be used by third-party PHP applications.

- An integer overflow bug was found in the PCRE (perl compatible regular
expression) library which could be used by a possible hacker to potentially
execute code. (CVE-2005-2491)
