medium Nessus Plugin ID 74292
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote web server uses a version of PHP that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

According to its banner, the version of PHP 5.5.x installed on the remote host is a version prior to 5.5.13. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- A flaw exists with the 'cdf_unpack_summary_info()' function within 'src/cdf.c' where multiple file_printf calls occur when handling specially crafted CDF files.
This could allow a context dependent attacker to crash the web application using PHP. (CVE-2014-0237)

- A flaw exists with the 'cdf_read_property_info()' function within 'src/cdf.c' where an infinite loop occurs when handling specially crafted CDF files. This could allow a context dependent attacker to crash the web application using PHP. (CVE-2014-0238)
- An out-of-bounds read exists in printf. (Bug #67249)

Note that Nessus has not attempted to exploit these issues, but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.

Solution

Upgrade to PHP version 5.5.13 or later.
