High Nessus Plugin ID 19930


The remote host is missing a vendor-supplied security patch


The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory SUSE-SA:2005:051 (php4,php5).

This update fixes the following security issues in the PHP scripting language.

- Bugs in the PEAR::XML_RPC library allowed remote attackers to pass arbitrary PHP code to the eval() function (CVE-2005-1921, CVE-2005-2498).

The Pear::XML_RPC library is not used by default in SUSE Linux, but might be used by third-party PHP applications.

- An integer overflow bug was found in the PCRE (perl compatible regular expression) library which could be used by an attacker to potentially execute code. (CVE-2005-2491)
