Fedora Core 3 2005-315: php Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the php package
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory FEDORA-2005-315 (php).
PHP is an HTML-embedded scripting language. PHP attempts to make it
easy for developers to write dynamically generated webpages. PHP also
offers built-in database integration for several commercial and
non-commercial database management systems, so writing a
database-enabled webpage with PHP is fairly simple. The most common
use of PHP coding is probably as a replacement for CGI scripts. The
mod_php module enables the Apache Web server to understand and process
the embedded PHP language in Web pages.
This update includes the latest stable release of PHP 4.3, including a
number of security fixes to the exif extension (CVE CVE-2005-1042 and
CVE-2005-1043) and the getimagesize() function (CVE CVE-2005-0524),
along with many bug fixes.
