New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The remote SuSE 10 host is missing a security-related patch.


This update fixes the following security problems in the PHP scripting language :

- Various buffer overflows in htmlentities/htmlspecialchars internal routines could be used to crash the PHP interpreter or potentially execute code, depending on the PHP application used.

- A missing open_basedir check inside chdir() function was added.

- A tempnam() openbasedir bypass was fixed.

- A possible buffer overflow in stream_socket_client() when using 'bindto' + IPv6 was fixed.

- Do not build php5 with --enable-sigchld.
