high Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 8960
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 vulnerabilities.

Description

Versions of PHP 5.6.x earlier than 5.6.12 are vulnerable to the following issues :

- A flaw exists in the file 'gd.c' due to the improper handling of images with large negative coordinates by the imagefilltoborder() function. An attacker can exploit this to cause a stack overflow, thus crashing an application using PHP.
- A flaw exists in the file 'php_odbc.c' when the odbc_fetch_array() function handles columns that are defined as NVARCHAR(MAX). An attacker can exploit this to crash an application using PHP.

Solution

Upgrade to PHP version 5.6.12 or later.
