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


Auke van Slooten discovered that PHP 5, an hypertext preprocessor, crashes (because of a NULL pointer dereference) when processing invalid XML-RPC requests.


Upgrade the php5 packages.

For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in version 5.2.6.dfsg.1-1+lenny8.
