PHP 5.x < 5.2.0 Multiple Vulnerabilities

high Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 4444
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 web server uses a version of PHP that is affected by multiple buffer overflows.

Description

According to its banner, the version of PHP 5.x installed on the remote host is older than 5.2.0. Such versions may be affected by several buffer overflows To exploit these issues, an attacker would need the ability to upload an arbitrary PHP script to the remote server, or to be able to manipulate several variables processed by some PHP functions such as htmlentities().

Solution

Upgrade to version 5.2.0 or higher.
