PHP 5.5.x < 5.5.33 Multiple Vulnerabilities
High Nessus Plugin ID 90007
SynopsisThe remote web server uses a version of PHP that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
DescriptionAccording to its banner, the version of PHP running on the remote web server is 5.5.x prior to 5.5.33. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :
- A use-after-free error exists in file ext/wddx/wddx.c in the php_wddx_pop_element() function when handling XML data. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via crafted XML data, to dereference already freed memory, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code.
- An out-of-bounds read error exists in file ext/phar/zip.c in the phar_parse_zipfile() function that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to cause a denial of service or to gain access to sensitive information. (CVE-2016-3142)
Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
SolutionUpgrade to PHP version 5.5.33 or later.
