Medium Nessus Plugin ID 117610
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security update.
DescriptionA vulnerability has been discovered in php5, a server-side, HTML-embedded scripting language. The Apache2 component allows XSS via the body of a 'Transfer-Encoding: chunked' request because of a defect in request handling.
For Debian 8 'Jessie', this problem has been fixed in version 5.6.38+dfsg-0+deb8u1.
We recommend that you upgrade your php5 packages.
