New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 8.9
SynopsisThe remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.
DescriptionA flaw was found in the way the php-cgi executable processed command line arguments when running in CGI mode. A remote attacker could send a specially crafted request to a PHP script that would result in the query string being parsed by php-cgi as command line options and arguments. This could lead to the disclosure of the script's source code or arbitrary code execution with the privileges of the PHP interpreter. (CVE-2012-1823)
SolutionRun 'yum update php' to update your system.
