MDKSA-2004:068: 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 MDKSA-2004:068 (php).

Stefan Esser discovered a remotely exploitable vulnerability in PHP where a
remote attacker could trigger a memory_limit request termination in places where
an interruption is unsafe. This could be used to execute arbitrary code.
As well, Stefan Esser also found a vulnerability in the handling of allowed tags
within PHP's strip_tags() function. This could lead to a number of XSS issues on
sites that rely on strip_tags()
however, this only seems to affect the Internet
Explorer and Safari browsers.
The updated packages have been patched to correct the problem and all users are
encouraged to upgrade immediately.
