SUSE-SA:2005:051: php4,php5 Vulnerability Scan


Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the php4,php5 package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory SUSE-SA:2005:051 (php4,php5).


This update fixes the following security issues in the PHP scripting
language.

- Bugs in the PEAR::XML_RPC library allowed remote attackers to pass
arbitrary PHP code to the eval() function (CVE-2005-1921,
CVE-2005-2498).

The Pear::XML_RPC library is not used by default in SUSE Linux, but
might be used by third-party PHP applications.

- An integer overflow bug was found in the PCRE (perl compatible regular
expression) library which could be used by a possible hacker to potentially
execute code. (CVE-2005-2491)
