PHP < 4.3.10 / 5.0.3 Multiple Vulnerabilities

High Nessus Plugin ID 15973

Synopsis

The remote web server uses a version of PHP that is potentially affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

According to its banner, the version of PHP installed on the remote host is prior to 4.3.10 / 5.0.3. It is, therefore, affected by multiple security issues that could, under certain circumstances, allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code on the remote host, provided that the attacker can pass arbitrary data to some functions, or to bypass safe_mode.

Solution

Upgrade to PHP 5.0.3 or 4.3.10.
