Description

PHP 4.3.4 and earlier in Apache 1.x and 2.x (mod_php) can leak global variables between virtual hosts that are handled by the same Apache child process but have different settings, which could allow remote attackers to obtain sensitive information.

Solution(s)

  • php-upgrade-4_3_5

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
