The remote Red Hat host is missing one or more security updates.
Updated php packages that fix various security issues are now
available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1.
PHP is an HTML-embedded scripting language commonly used with the
Apache HTTP Web server.
A double-free bug was found in the deserialization code of PHP. PHP
applications use the unserialize function on untrusted user data,
which could allow a remote attacker to gain access to memory or
potentially execute arbitrary code. The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2004-1019
to this issue.
Flaws were found in the pack and unpack PHP functions. These functions
do not normally pass user-supplied data, so they would require a
malicious PHP script to be exploited. The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2004-1018
to this issue.
A bug was discovered in the initialization of the OpenSSL library,
such that the curl extension could not be used to perform HTTP
requests over SSL unless the php-imap package was installed.
Users of PHP should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
fixes for these issues.
