SUSE-SA:2005:002: php4, mod_php4

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 16306


The remote host is missing a vendor-supplied security patch


The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory SUSE-SA:2005:002 (php4, mod_php4).

PHP is a well known, widely-used scripting language often used within web server setups.

Stefan Esser and Marcus Boerger found several buffer overflow problems in the unserializer functions of PHP (CVE-2004-1019) and Ilia Alshanetsky (CVE-2004-1065) found one in the exif parser. Any of them could allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code as the user running the PHP interpreter.

Additionally a bug where the server would disclose php sourcecode under some circumstances has been fixed.
