MDKSA-2005:146: php-pear Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the php-pear package
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2005:146 (php-pear).
A problem was discovered in the PEAR XML-RPC Server package included in the
php-pear package. If a PHP script which implements the XML-RPC Server is used,
it would be possible for a remote attacker to construct an XML-RPC request
which would cause PHP to execute arbitrary commands as the 'apache' user.
