New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 5.2
SynopsisThe remote web server uses a version of PHP that is affected by a security bypass vulnerability.
DescriptionAccording to its banner, PHP 5.3.7 is installed on the remote host. This version contains a bug in the crypt() function when generating salted MD5 hashes. The function only returns the salt rather than the salt and hash. Any authentication mechanism that uses crypt() could authorize all authentication attempts due to this bug.
SolutionUpgrade to PHP 5.3.8 or later.
