Description

According to its banner, the version of PHP installed on the remote host is older than 5.2.9. Such versions may be affected by several security issues :

  • Background color is not correctly validated with a non true color image in function 'imagerotate()'. (CVE-2008-5498)

  • A denial of service condition can be triggered by trying to extract zip files that contain files with relative paths in file or directory names.

  • Function 'explode()' is affected by an unspecified vulnerability.

  • It may be possible to trigger a segfault by passing a specially crafted string to function 'json_decode()'.

  • Function 'xml_error_string()' is affected by a flaw which results in messages being off by one.
