High Nessus Plugin ID 35051

Synopsis

The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.

Description

Secunia reports :

Some vulnerabilities have been reported in PHP, where some have an unknown impact and others can potentially be exploited by malicious people to cause a DoS (Denial of Service) or compromise a vulnerable system.

An input validation error exists within the 'ZipArchive::extractTo()' function when extracting ZIP archives. This can be exploited to extract files to arbitrary locations outside the specified directory via directory traversal sequences in a specially crafted ZIP archive.

An error in the included PCRE library can be exploited to cause a buffer overflow.

The problem is that the 'BG(page_uid)' and 'BG(page_gid)' variables are not initialized. No further information is currently available.

The problem is that the 'php_value' order is incorrect for Apache configurations. No further information is currently available.

An error in the GD library can be exploited to cause a crash via a specially crafted font file.

Solution

Update the affected package.
