openSUSE Security Update : php5 (openSUSE-SU-2012:1169-1)

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


Synopsis :

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description :

php5 was updated to fix two security issues :

- use FilesMatch with 'SetHandler' rather than
'AddHandler' [bnc#775852] Since this update just hardens
a configuration to protect weakly designed web
applications, there was no CVE assigned.

- A HTTP header Carriage-Return injection flaw was fixed
(CVE-2011-1398 and CVE-2011-4388 [bnc#778003])
