MDKSA-2006:035-1: 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-2006:035-1 (php).
A flaw in the PHP gd extension in versions prior to 4.4.1 could allow a remote
attacker to bypass safe_mode and open_basedir restrictions via unknown attack
A regression was introduced with the backported patch from PHP 4.4.1 that would
prevent PHP from creating a new file with imagepng(), imagejpeg(), etc. Thanks
to Tibor Pittich for bringing this to our attention. The updated packages have
been patched to correct this issue.
