F5 Networks BIG-IP : PHP vulnerability (SOL17313)

Low Nessus Plugin ID 86109

Synopsis

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

Description

The phpinfo implementation in ext/standard/info.c in PHP before 5.4.30 and 5.5.x before 5.5.14 does not ensure use of the string data type for the PHP_AUTH_PW, PHP_AUTH_TYPE, PHP_AUTH_USER, and PHP_SELF variables, which might allow context-dependent attackers to obtain sensitive information from process memory by using the integer data type with crafted values, related to a 'type confusion' vulnerability, as demonstrated by reading a private SSL key in an Apache HTTP Server web-hosting environment with mod_ssl and a PHP 5.3.x mod_php

Solution

Upgrade to one of the non-vulnerable versions listed in the F5 Solution SOL17313.
