PHP Image File Format Denial Of Service Vulnerabilities Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Checks for image file format denial of service vulnerabilities in PHP

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

Synopsis :

The remote web server is prone to denial of service attacks.

Description :

According to its banner, the version of PHP installed on the remote
host is vulnerable to a denial of service attack due to its failure to
properly validate file data in the routines 'php_handle_iff' and
'php_handle_jpeg', which are called by the PHP function
'getimagesize'. Using a specially crafted image file, a possible hacker can
trigger an infinite loop when 'getimagesize' is called, perhaps even
remotely in the case image uploads are allowed.
