MDKSA-2006:162: 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-2006:162 (php).
The (1) file_exists and (2) imap_reopen functions in PHP before 5.1.5
do not check for the safe_mode and open_basedir settings, which allows
local users to bypass the settings (CVE-2006-4481).
Buffer overflow in the LWZReadByte function in ext/gd/libgd/gd_gif_in.c
in the GD extension in PHP before 5.1.5 allows remote attackers to have
an unknown impact via a GIF file with input_code_size greater than
MAX_LWZ_BITS, which triggers an overflow when initializing the table
The stripos function in PHP before 5.1.5 has unknown impact and attack
vectors related to an out-of-bounds read (CVE-2006-4485).
CVE-2006-4485 does not affect the Corporate3 or MNF2 versions of PHP.
Updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
