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 5.3.26. It is, therefore, potentially affected by the following vulnerabilities:
- An error exists in the function 'php_quot_print_encode' in the file 'ext/standard/quot_print.c' that could allow a heap-based buffer overflow when attempting to parse certain strings (Bug #64879)
- An integer overflow error exists related to the value of 'JEWISH_SDN_MAX' in the file 'ext/calendar/jewish.c' that could allow denial of service attacks. (Bug #64895)
Note that this plugin does not attempt to exploit these vulnerabilities, but instead relies only on PHP's self-reported version number.
SolutionApply the vendor patch or upgrade to PHP version 5.3.26 or later.
