CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

CVSS Base Vector:
AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C

Detection Type:
Linux Distribution Package

Summary:
Check the version of php

Detection Method:
Checks if a vulnerable version is present on the target host.

Technical Details:
PHP is an HTML-embedded scripting language commonly used with the Apache HTTP Server. A flaw was found in the way PHP parsed multipart HTTP POST requests. A specially crafted request could cause PHP to use an excessive amount of CPU time. (CVE-2015-4024) An uninitialized pointer use flaw was found in PHP's Exif extension. A specially crafted JPEG or TIFF file could cause a PHP application using the exif_read_data() function to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running that PHP application. (CVE-2015-0232) An integer overflow flaw leading to a heap-based buffer overflow was found in the way PHP's FTP extension parsed file listing FTP server responses. A malicious FTP server could use this flaw to cause a PHP application to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-4022) Multiple flaws were discovered in the way PHP performed object unserialization. Specially crafted input processed by the unserialize() function could cause a PHP application to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-0273, CVE-2015-2787, CVE-2015-4147, CVE-2015-4148, CVE-2015-4599, CVE-2015-4600, CVE-2015-4601, CVE-2015-4602, CVE-2015-4603) It was found that certain PHP functions did not properly handle file names containing a NULL character. A remote attacker could possibly use this flaw to make a PHP script access unexpected files and bypass intended file system access restrictions. (CVE-2015-4026, CVE-2015-3411, CVE-2015-3412, CVE-2015-4598) Multiple flaws were found in the way the way PHP's Phar extension parsed Phar archives. A specially crafted archive could cause PHP to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code when opened. (CVE-2015-2301, CVE-2015-2783, CVE-2015-3307, CVE-2015-3329, CVE-2015-4021) A heap buffer overflow flaw was found in the enchant_broker_request_dict() function of PHP's enchant extension. An attacker able to make a PHP application enchant dictionaries could possibly cause it to crash. (CVE-2014-9705) A buffer over-read flaw was found in the GD library used by the PHP gd extension. A specially crafted GIF file could cause a PHP application using the imagecreatefromgif() function to crash. (CVE-2014-9709) A double free flaw was found in zend_ts_hash_graceful_destroy() function in the PHP ZTS module. This flaw could possibly cause a PHP application to crash. (CVE-2014-9425) All php users are advised to upgrade to these updated Linux Distribution Packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues. After installing the updated Linux Distribution Packages, the httpd daemon must be restarted for the update to take effect.

Affected Versions:

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
