PHP < 5.3.11 Multiple Vulnerabilities

High

Synopsis

The remote web server uses a version of PHP that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

PHP versions earlier than 5.3.11 are affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- During the import of environment variables, temporary changes to the 'magic_quotes_gpc' directive are not handled properly. This can lower the difficulty for SQL injection attacks. (CVE-2012-0831)

- The '$_FILES' variable can be corrupted because the names of uploaded files are not properly validated. (CVE-2012-1172)

- The 'open_basedir' directive is not properly handled by the functions 'readline_write_history' and 'readline_read_history'.

- The 'header()' function does not detect multi-line headers with a CR. (Bug #60227 / CVE-2011-1398)

Solution

Upgrade to PHP version 5.3.11 or later.
