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.
