medium Nessus Plugin ID 27389
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.


This update fixes the following security issues: - invalid charactes in session names were not blocked - a bug in zend_hash_del() allowed attackers to prevent unsetting of some variables - bugs in the substr_compare() and wordwrap function could crash php (CVE-2006-1991, CVE-2006-1990) - a memory leak in the imagecreatefromgif() function


Update the affected php5 packages.
