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: 6.7
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.
DescriptionSeveral remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in PHP, a server-side, HTML-embedded scripting language, which may lead to the execution of arbitrary code. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems :
- CVE-2007-1399 Stefan Esser discovered that a buffer overflow in the zip extension allows the execution of arbitrary code.
- CVE-2007-1864 It was discovered that a buffer overflow in the xmlrpc extension allows the execution of arbitrary code.
The oldstable distribution (sarge) doesn't include php5.
SolutionUpgrade the PHP packages. Packages for the littleendian Mips architecture are not yet available, due to problems on the build host.
They will be provided later.
For the stable distribution (etch) these problems have been fixed in version 5.2.0-8+etch7.
