Summary:
The remote host is missing an update for the Huawei EulerOS 'php' Linux Distribution Package(s) announced via the EulerOS-SA-2021-2479 advisory.

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

Technical Details:
Several flaws has been found in php. The pdo_firebase module does not check the length of the server version string in a response packet causing a stack buffer overflow, does not verify the data and uses the wrong type to cast length leading to a crash, and does not validate the response before calculation of the exec procedure leading to a crash. The highest threat from this vulnerability is to system availability.(CVE-2021-21704) A flaw was found in php. Currently, php's FILTER_VALIDATE_URL check doesn't recognize some non-compliant RFC 3986 URLs and returns them as valid. This flaw allows an attacker to craft URLs, which depending on how the URL filter checking is used on the application side, lead to Server Side Request Forgery. This issue presents an integrity risk for the application, as eventually, the attacker can manipulate resources that shouldn't be fully available for users.(CVE-2021-21705)

Affected Versions:
'php' Linux Distribution Package(s) on Huawei EulerOS V2.0SP8.

Recommendations:
Please install the updated Linux Distribution Package(s).

Solution Type:
Vendor Patch

Detection Type:
Linux Distribution Package

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".
