High Nessus Plugin ID 35067
SynopsisThe remote web server uses a version of PHP that may be affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
DescriptionAccording to its banner, the version of PHP installed on the remote host is earlier than 5.2.8. As such, it is potentially affected by the following vulnerabilities :
- PHP fails to properly sanitize error messages of arbitrary HTML or script code, would code allow for cross-site scripting attacks if PHP's 'display_errors' setting is enabled. (CVE-2008-5814)
- Version 5.2.7 introduced a regression with regard to 'magic_quotes' functionality due to an incorrect fix to the filter extension. As a result, the 'magic_quotes_gpc' setting remains off even if it is set to on. (CVE-2008-5844)
SolutionUpgrade to PHP version 5.2.8 or later.
