medium Web Application Scanning Plugin ID 98820
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

PHP 5.6.x < 5.6.3 donote DoS

Description

According to its banner, the version of PHP 5.6.x installed on the remote host is prior to 5.6.3. It is, therefore, affected by an out-of-bounds read error in the function 'donote' within the file 'ext/fileinfo/libmagic/readelf.c' that could allow application crashes.

Note that the scanner has not attempted to exploit these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.

Solution

Upgrade to PHP version 5.6.3 or later.
