MDKSA-2006:091: 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-2006:091 (php).

An integer overflow in the wordwrap() function could allow attackers

to execute arbitrary code via certain long arguments that cause a small

buffer to be allocated, triggering a heap-based buffer overflow


The substr_compare() function in PHP 5.x and 4.4.2 could allow

attackers to cause a Denial of Service (memory access violation)

via an out-of-bounds offset argument (CVE-2006-1991).

The second vulnerability only affects Mandriva Linux 2006

versions shipped with older versions of PHP that do not contain the

substr_compare() function.
