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 is different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 5.7

Synopsis

The remote device is missing a vendor-supplied security patch.

Description

PHP versions prior to 5.3.9 compute hash values for form parameters without restricting the ability to trigger hash collisions predictably, which may allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (DoS) (CPU consumption) by sending many crafted parameters.
(CVE-2011-4885)

Solution

Upgrade to one of the non-vulnerable versions listed in the F5 Solution K13588.
