Description

According to its banner, the version of PHP 5.x installed on the remote host is older than 5.1.0. Such versions may be affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

  • A cross-site scripting vulnerability exists in phpinfo().

  • Multiple safe_mode/open_basedir bypass vulnerabilities exist in ext/curl and ext/gd.

  • It is possible to overwrite $GLOBALS due to an issue in file upload handling, extract(), and import_request_variables().

  • An issue exists when a request is terminated due to memory_limit constraints during certain parse_str() calls, which could lead to register globals being turned on.

  • An issue exists with trailing slashes in allowed basedirs.

  • An issue exists with calling virtual() on Apache 2, which allows an attacker to bypass certain configuration directives like safe_mode or open_basedir.

  • A possible header injection exists in the mb_send_mail() function.

  • The apache2handler SAPI in the Apache module allows attackers to cause a denial of service.
