SuSE 10 Security Update : PHP5 (ZYPP Patch Number 8114)

high Nessus Plugin ID 59053
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.


This update fixes several security issues in PHP5 :

- A directory traversal bug has been fixed in php5.

- A command injection was possible when PHP5 was operated in CGI mode using commandline options. This problem does not affect PHP5 in the normal Apache module mode setup.
(CVE-2012-1823 / CVE-2012-2311)

- Also a pack/unpacking bug on big endian 64bit architectures (ppc64 and s390x) has been fixed.


Apply ZYPP patch number 8114.
