MDKSA-2006:196: 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-2006:196 (php).

The Hardened-PHP Project discovered buffer overflows in
htmlentities/htmlspecialchars internal routines to the PHP Project.
The purpose of these functions is to be filled with user input.
(The overflow can only be when UTF-8 is used) (CVE-2006-5465)
Unspecified vulnerabilities in PHP, probably before 5.2.0, allow local
users to bypass open_basedir restrictions and perform unspecified
actions via unspecified vectors involving the (1) chdir and (2) tempnam
functions. NOTE: the tempnam vector might overlap CVE-2006-1494.
Updated packages have been patched to correct these issues. Users must
restart Apache for the changes to take effect.
