PHP 5.4.x < 5.4.12 Information Disclosure
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 64993
SynopsisThe remote web server uses a version of PHP that is potentially affected by an information disclosure vulnerability.
DescriptionAccording to its banner, the version of PHP 5.4.x installed on the remote host is prior to 5.4.12. It is, therefore, potentially affected by an information disclosure 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-2013-1824)
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 5.4.12 or later.
