PHP 5.3.7 crypt() MD5 Incorrect Return Value
High Log Correlation Engine Plugin ID 801098
SynopsisThe remote web server uses a version of PHP that is affected by a security bypass vulnerability.
DescriptionPHP version 5.3.7 contains a bug in the crypt() function when generating salted MD5 hashes. The function only returns the salt rather than the salt and hash. Any authentication mechanism that uses crypt() could authorize all authentication attempts due to this bug.
SolutionUpgrade to PHP version 5.3.8 or later.
