SynopsisThe remote web server uses a version of PHP that is potentially affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
DescriptionAccording to its banner, the version of PHP 5.3.x installed on the remote host is prior to 5.3.22. It is, therefore, potentially affected by the following vulnerabilities :
- An error exists in the file 'ext/soap/soap.c' related to the 'soap.wsdl_cache_dir' configuration directive and writing cache files that could allow remote 'wsdl' files to be written to arbitrary locations. (CVE-2013-1635)
- An error exists in the file 'ext/soap/php_xml.c' related to parsing SOAP 'wsdl' files and external entities that could cause PHP to parse remote XML documents defined by an attacker. This could allow access to arbitrary files. (CVE-2013-1643)
Note that this plugin does not attempt to exploit the vulnerabilities but, instead relies only on PHP's self-reported version number.
SolutionUpgrade to PHP version 5.3.22 or later.
