SuSE 10 Security Update : PHP5 (ZYPP Patch Number 7221)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 50975


New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


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


The following issues have been fixed :

- Insufficient handling of certain character sequences in the utf8_decode() function could be leveraged to conduct cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks. (CVE-2010-3870)

- php5 could also consume large amounts of memory and crash if a long mail address was passed to filter_var() with the parameter FILTER_VALIDATE_EMAIL.


Apply ZYPP patch number 7221.
