PHP < 4.3.10 / 5.0.3 Multiple Vulnerabilities

High Nessus Plugin ID 15973

New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 6.8


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


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.


Upgrade to PHP 5.0.3 or 4.3.10.
