Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : mod_php3 (MDKSA-2000:062)

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


Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

PHP version 3 which ships with Linux-Mandrake are vulnerable to format
string attacks due to logging functions that make improper use of the
syslog() and vsnprintf() functions. This renders PHP3-enabled servers
vulnerable to compromise by remote attackers. This attack is only
effective on PHP installations that log errors and warnings while
those servers that do not are not affected. By default, Linux-Mandrake
systems do not have logging enabled.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

Critical / CVSS Base Score : 10.0
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C)
