[GLSA-200511-08] PHP: Multiple vulnerabilities Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
PHP: Multiple vulnerabilities

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200511-08
(PHP: Multiple vulnerabilities)

Multiple vulnerabilities have been found and fixed in PHP:
a possible $GLOBALS variable overwrite problem through file
upload handling, extract() and import_request_variables()
a local Denial of Service through the use of
the session.save_path option (CVE-2005-3319)
an issue with
trailing slashes in allowed basedirs (CVE-2005-3054)
an issue
with calling virtual() on Apache 2, allowing to bypass safe_mode and
open_basedir restrictions (CVE-2005-3392)
a problem when a
request was terminated due to memory_limit constraints during certain
parse_str() calls (CVE-2005-3389)
The curl and gd modules
allowed to bypass the safe mode open_basedir restrictions
a cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in
phpinfo() (CVE-2005-3388)


Attackers could leverage these issues to exploit applications that
are assumed to be secure through the use of proper register_globals,
safe_mode or open_basedir parameters. Remote attackers could also
conduct cross-site scripting attacks if a page calling phpinfo() was
available. Finally, a local attacker could cause a local Denial of
Service using malicious session.save_path options.


There is no known workaround that would solve all issues at this
