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.

Synopsis

The remote Fedora host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

The PHP development team would like to announce the immediate availability of PHP 5.4.4. All users of PHP are encouraged to upgrade to PHP 5.4.4.

The release fixes multiple security issues: A weakness in the DES implementation of crypt and a heap overflow issue in the phar extension.

PHP 5.4.4 fixes over 30 bugs. Please note that the use of php://fd streams is now restricted to the CLI SAPI

Changelog: http://www.php.net/ChangeLog-5.php#5.4.4

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Update the affected maniadrive and / or php packages.
