Medium Web Application Scanning Plugin ID 98875


PHP 7.1.x < 7.1.20 exif_thumbnail_extract() DoS


According to its banner, the version of PHP running on the remote web server is 5.6.x prior to 5.6.37 or 7.1.x prior to 7.1.20. It is, therefore, affected by a denial of service vulnerability.

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


Upgrade to PHP version 7.1.20 or later.
