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.

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.
