Technical Details:
The Zend people have found a vulnerability in older versions of PHP4 (the original advisory speaks of 4.0.4 while the bugs are present in 4.0.3 as well). It is possible to specify PHP directives on a per-directory basis which leads to a remote attacker crafting an HTTP request that would cause the next page to be served with the wrong values for these directives. Also even if PHP is installed, it can be activated and deactivated on a per-directory or per-virtual host basis using the 'engine=on' or 'engine=off' directive. This setting can be leaked to other virtual hosts on the same machine, effectively disabling PHP for those hosts and resulting in PHP source code being sent to the client instead of being executed on the server. We recommend you upgrade your php4 Linux Distribution Packages.

Summary:
The remote host is missing an update to php4 announced via advisory DSA 020-1.

Detection Type:
Linux Distribution Package

Solution Type:
Vendor Patch

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".
