Synopsis: The remote web server uses a version of PHP that is affected by
multiple vulnerabilities.

According to its banner, the version of PHP 5.3.x installed on the
remote host is older than 5.3.6.

PS:.. The xampp version installed is the latest :X

Short answer: you can't update any of the core single component on it's own with XAMPP.
We don't provide any support via personal channels like PM, email, Skype, TeamViewer!

I don't see why you wouldn't be able to update individual components if you are familiar with them. I have manually updated my apache, phpmyadmin, mysql, and filezilla server in XAMPP. With that said, you cannot just blindly overwrite them.

You could also consider trying the new XAMPP beta. It has updated versions of most of the programs including the latest version of PHP. You can grab it here: http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp-beta.html

To update the php in XAMPP you would need to know how to compile php into Apache as a module.

If you know how to do that then you would no doubt not need XAMPP but rather you could put together your own stack.
