Fedora Core 3 : php-4.3.11-2.7 (2005-809)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 19667


The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.


This update includes the latest upstream version of the PEAR XML_RPC package, which fixes a security issue in request parsing in the XML_RPC Server code. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2005-2498 to this issue.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Update the affected packages.
