Amazon Linux AMI : php54 (ALAS-2013-224)

This script is Copyright (C) 2013-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.

Description :

Session fixation vulnerability in the Sessions subsystem in PHP before
5.5.2 allows remote attackers to hijack web sessions by specifying a
session ID.

The openssl_x509_parse function in openssl.c in the OpenSSL module in
PHP before 5.4.18 and 5.5.x before 5.5.2 does not properly handle a
'\0' character in a domain name in the Subject Alternative Name field
of an X.509 certificate, which allows man-in-the-middle attackers to
spoof arbitrary SSL servers via a crafted certificate issued by a
legitimate Certification Authority, a related issue to CVE-2009-2408 .
