critical Nessus Plugin ID 27390
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.


CVE-2007-0906: Multiple buffer overflows in PHP before 5.2.1 allow attackers to cause a denial of service and possibly execute arbitrary code via unspecified vectors in the (1) session, (2) zip, (3) imap, and (4) sqlite extensions; (5) stream filters; and the (6) str_replace, (7) mail, (8) ibase_delete_user, (9) ibase_add_user, and (10) ibase_modify_user functions.

CVE-2007-0907: Buffer underflow in PHP before 5.2.1 allows attackers to cause a denial of service via unspecified vectors involving the sapi_header_op function.

CVE-2007-0908: The wddx extension in PHP before 5.2.1 allows remote attackers to obtain sensitive information via unspecified vectors.

CVE-2007-0909: Multiple format string vulnerabilities in PHP before 5.2.1 might allow attackers to execute arbitrary code via format string specifiers to (1) all of the *print functions on 64-bit systems, and (2) the odbc_result_all function.

CVE-2007-0910: Unspecified vulnerability in PHP before 5.2.1 allows attackers to 'clobber' certain super-global variables via unspecified vectors.

CVE-2007-0911: Off-by-one error in the str_ireplace function in PHP 5.2.1 might allow context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (crash).

CVE-2006-6383: PHP 5.2.0 and 4.4 allows local users to bypass safe_mode and open_basedir restrictions via a malicious path and a null byte before a ';' in a session_save_path argument, followed by an allowed path, which causes a parsing inconsistency in which PHP validates the allowed path but sets session.save_path to the malicious path. And another fix for open_basedir was added to stop mixing up its setting in a virtual host environment.


Update the affected php5 packages.
