high Nessus Plugin ID 92997
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 Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

Security Fix(es) :

- It was discovered that PHP did not properly protect against the HTTP_PROXY variable name clash. A remote attacker could possibly use this flaw to redirect HTTP requests performed by a PHP script to an attacker- controlled proxy via a malicious HTTP request.
(CVE-2016-5385)

Bug Fix(es) :

- Previously, an incorrect logic in the SAPI header callback routine caused that the callback counter was not incremented. Consequently, when a script included a header callback, it could terminate unexpectedly with a segmentation fault. With this update, the callback counter is properly managed, and scripts with a header callback implementation work as expected.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
