PHP 5.3.x < 5.3.22 Multiple Vulnerabilities
High Nessus Plugin ID 64992
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
- 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.
