[R8] SecurityCenter 5.3.2 Fixes Multiple Third-party Library Vulnerabilities



SecurityCenter is potentially impacted by several vulnerabilities in PHP that were recently disclosed and fixed. Note that due to the time involved in doing a full analysis of the issue, Tenable has opted to patch the included version of PHP as a precaution, and to save time instead.

  • PHP ext/intl/grapheme/grapheme_string.c zif_grapheme_stripos Negative Offset Handling Out-of-bounds Read issue
  • PHP ext/xml/xml.c xml_parse_into_struct() Function XML Handling Remote DoS
  • PHP ext/exif/exif.c exif_read_data() Function Exif Header Handling Remote Out-of-bounds Read Issue
  • PHP ext/bcmath/bcmath.c php_str2num() Function Negative Scale Handling Remote Out-of-bounds Read Issue
  • GD Graphics Library (libgd) gd_gd2.c Compressed GD2 Data Handling Signedness Error Heap Buffer Overflow

Note: The CVSSv2 score used in this advisory reflects the GD Graphics Library issue, as it is considered the highest risk. Further, Tenable strongly recommends that Nessus be installed on a subnet that is not Internet addressable.


Tenable has released SecurityCenter 5.3.2 that includes PHP 5.6.21, as well as new features and enhancements and is highly recommended. Upgrade information can be obtained from:


Additionally, Tenable has released a patch for SecurityCenter versions 5.3.1, 5.2.0, 5.1.0, and 5.0.2 that addresses these issues. This patch applies PHP 5.6.21, which is not affected. Upgrade information can be obtained from:
