The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security

A vulnerability in PHP allowed context-dependent attackers to cause a
denial of service (crash) via a certain long string in the glob() or
fnmatch() functions (CVE-2007-4782).

A vulnerability in the cURL library in PHP allowed context-dependent
attackers to bypass safe_mode and open_basedir restrictions and read
arbitrary files using a special URL request (CVE-2007-4850).

An integer overflow in PHP allowed context-dependent attackers to
cause a denial of serivce via a special printf() format parameter

A stack-based buffer overflow in the FastCGI SAPI in PHP has unknown
impact and attack vectors (CVE-2008-2050).

context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and
potentially execute arbitrary code via a crafted font file
(CVE-2008-3658).

A buffer overflow in the memnstr() function allowed context-dependent
attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and potentially execute

PHP, when used as a FastCGI module, allowed remote attackers to cause
a denial of service (crash) via a request with multiple dots preceding

An array index error in the imageRotate() function in PHP allowed
context-dependent attackers to read the contents of arbitrary memory
