PHP 5.3.x < 5.3.26 Multiple Vulnerabilities
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 66842
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
SolutionApply the vendor patch or upgrade to PHP version 5.3.26 or later.
