PHP 5.4.x < 5.4.34 / 5.5.x < 5.5.18 / 5.6.x < 5.6.2 Multiple Vulnerabilities

High Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 8563


The remote web server uses an outdated version of PHP, leaving it vulnerable to several issues.


Versions earlier than 5.6.2, 5.5.18, and 5.4.34 are exposed to the following issues :

- An array indexing flaw in the 'date_from_ISO8601()' function in ext/xmlrpc/libxmlrpc/xmlrpc.c could be used to disclose memory content (CVE-2014-3668)

- A memory corruption vulnerability when processing thumbnails in the 'exif_ifd_make_value()' function of ext/exif/exif.c could potentially crash the system or be a vector for remote code execution (CVE-2014-3670)

- An integer overflow condition in the 'object_custom()' function in ext/standard/ can cause a crash (CVE-2014-3669)

- Memory content disclosure in ext/curl/interface.c when handling NULL bytes ('\0') in cURL options.


Apply the vendor's patch, or upgrade to the latest version. These issues have been fixed in versions 5.6.2, 5.5.18, and 5.4.34.
