This script is Copyright (C) 2007-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description :

CVE-2007-0906: Multiple buffer overflows in PHP before 5.2.1 allow
attackers to cause a denial of service and possibly execute arbitrary
code via unspecified vectors in the (1) session, (2) zip, (3) imap,
and (4) sqlite extensions; (5) stream filters; and the (6)
str_replace, (7) mail, (8) ibase_delete_user, (9) ibase_add_user, and
(10) ibase_modify_user functions.

CVE-2007-0907: Buffer underflow in PHP before 5.2.1 allows attackers
to cause a denial of service via unspecified vectors involving the
sapi_header_op function.

CVE-2007-0908: The wddx extension in PHP before 5.2.1 allows remote
attackers to obtain sensitive information via unspecified vectors.

CVE-2007-0909: Multiple format string vulnerabilities in PHP before
5.2.1 might allow attackers to execute arbitrary code via format
string specifiers to (1) all of the *print functions on 64-bit
systems, and (2) the odbc_result_all function.

CVE-2007-0910: Unspecified vulnerability in PHP before 5.2.1 allows
attackers to 'clobber' certain super-global variables via unspecified

CVE-2007-0911: Off-by-one error in the str_ireplace function in PHP
5.2.1 might allow context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of
service (crash).

CVE-2006-6383: PHP 5.2.0 and 4.4 allows local users to bypass
safe_mode and open_basedir restrictions via a malicious path and a
null byte before a ';' in a session_save_path argument, followed by an
allowed path, which causes a parsing inconsistency in which PHP
validates the allowed path but sets session.save_path to the malicious
path. And another fix for open_basedir was added to stop mixing up its
setting in a virtual host environment.
