SynopsisThe remote web server uses a version of PHP that is affected by a heap-based buffer overflow vulnerability.
DescriptionPHP versions earlier than 5.4.16 and 5.3.26 are affected by a heap based buffer overflow vulnerability due to lack of user input sanitation when parsing strings. (An additional security vulnerability exists while parsing 'mimetype' for MP3 files, which can be exploited to cause a crash in version 5.4.15.)
