CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

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

Summary:
Check the version of php53

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 buffer overflow flaw was found in the Exif extension. A specially crafted JPEG or TIFF file could cause a PHP application using the exif_thumbnail() function to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running that PHP application. (CVE-2014-3670) An integer overflow flaw was found in the way custom objects were unserialized. Specially crafted input processed by the unserialize() function could cause a PHP application to crash. (CVE-2014-3669) An out-of-bounds read flaw was found in the way the File Information (fileinfo) extension parsed Executable and Linkable Format (ELF) files. A remote attacker could use this flaw to crash a PHP application using fileinfo via a specially crafted ELF file. (CVE-2014-3710) An out of bounds read flaw was found in the way the xmlrpc extension parsed dates in the ISO 8601 format. A specially crafted XML-RPC request or response could possibly cause a PHP application to crash. (CVE-2014-3668) The CVE-2014-3710 issue was discovered by Francisco Alonso of Red Hat Product Security. All php53 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.

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".
