This script is Copyright (C) 2012-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote SuSE 11 host is missing one or more security updates.

Description :

This update of PHP5 fixes multiple security flaws :

- missing checks of return values could allow remote
attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer
dereference). (CVE-2011-4153)

- specially crafted XSLT stylesheets could allow remote
attackers to create arbitrary files with arbitrary
content. (CVE-2012-0057)

- a stack-based buffer overflow in php5's Suhosin
extension could allow remote attackers to execute
arbitrary code via a long string that is used in a
Set-Cookie HTTP header. (CVE-2012-0807)

- temporary changes to the magic_quotes_gpc directive
during the importing of environment variables is not
properly performed which makes it easier for remote
attackers to conduct SQL injections. (CVE-2012-0831)
