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: 6.6
SynopsisThe remote web server uses a version of PHP that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
DescriptionAccording to its banner, the version of PHP 5.x installed on the remote host is older than 5.2.2. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities:
- A heap-based buffer overflow vulnerability was found in PHP's gd extension. A script that could be forced to process WBMP images from an untrusted source could result in arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2007-1001)
- A vulnerability in the way the mbstring extension setglobal variables was discovered where a script using the mb_parse_str() function to set global variables could be forced to to enable the register_globals configuration option, possibly resulting in global variable injection. (CVE-2007-1583)
- A context-dependent attacker could read portions of heap memory by executing certain scripts with a serialized data input string beginning with 'S:', which did not properly track the number of input bytes being processed. (CVE-2007-1649)
- A vulnerability in how PHP's mail() function processed email messages, truncating potentially important information after the first ASCIIZ (\0) byte.
- A vulnerability in how PHP's mail() function processed header data was discovered. If a script sent mail using a subject header containing a string from an untrusted source, a remote attacker could send bulk email to unintended recipients (CVE-2007-1718).
SolutionUpgrade to PHP version 5.2.2 or later.
