PHP < 5.2.14 / 5.3.x < 5.3.3 Multiple Vulnerabilities

high Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 5616
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.


The remote web server uses a version of PHP that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


Versions of PHP prior to 5.2.14, or 5.3.x prior to 5.3.3 are affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- An information disclosure vulnerability in 'var_export()' when a fatal error occurs.
- A resource destruction issue in 'shm_put_var()'.
- A possible information leak because of an interruption of XOR operator.
- A memory corruption issue caused by an unexpected call-time pass by reference and the following memory clobbering through callbacks.
- A memory corruption issue in 'ArrayObject::uasort()'.
- A memory corruption issue in 'parse_str()'.
- A memory corruption issue in 'pack()'.
- A memory corruption issue in 'substr_replace()'.
- A memory corruption issue in 'addcslashes()'.
- A stack exhaustion issue in 'fnmatch()'.
- A buffer overflow vulnerability in the dechunking filter.
- An arbitrary memory access issue in the sqlite extension.
- A string format validation issue in the phar extension.
- An unspecified issue relating to the handling of session variable serialization on certain prefix characters.
- A NULL pointer dereference issue when processing invalid XML-RPC requests.
- An unserialization issue in 'SplObjectStorage'.
- Buffer overflow vulnerabilities in 'mysqlnd_list_fields' and 'mysqlnd_change_user'.
- Buffer overflows when handling error packets in mysqlnd.
- A flaw affects 'sqlite_single_query()' and 'sqlite_array_query()' methods included in the 'ext/sqlite/sqlite.c' source file. Specifically, the 'rres' resource is not properly initialized before use which may trigger a double-free condition when an empty query is passed to the 'real_result_dtor()' function.


Upgrade to PHP version 5.2.14, 5.3.3, or later.
