MDKSA-2007:048: 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-2007:048 (php).
A number of vulnerabilities were discovered in PHP language.
Many buffer overflow flaws were discovered in the PHP session
extension, the str_replace() function, and the imap_mail_compose()
function. A possible hacker able to use a PHP application using any of
these functions could trigger these flaws and possibly execute
arbitrary code as the apache user (CVE-2007-0906).
A one-byte memory read will always occur prior to the beginning of a
buffer, which could be triggered, for example, by any use of the
header() function in a script (CVE-2007-0907).
The wddx extension, if used to import WDDX data from an untrusted
source, may allow a random portion of heap memory to be exposed due
to certain WDDX input packets (CVE-2007-0908).
The odbc_result_all() function, if used to display data from a
and if the contents of the database are under the control of an
attacker, could lead to the execution of arbitrary code due to a format
string vulnerability (CVE-2007-0909).
Several flaws in the PHP could allow attackers to clobber certain
super-global variables via unspecified vectors (CVE-2007-0910).
The zend_hash_init() function can be forced into an infinite loop
if unserializing untrusted data on a 64-bit platform, resulting in
the consumption of CPU resources until the script timeout alarm aborts
the execution of the script (CVE-2007-0988).
Updated package have been patched to correct this issue.
