Ubuntu 4.10 : php4 vulnerabilities (USN-105-1)

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2005-2013 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2006-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.

Description :

Two Denial of Service vulnerabilities have been discovered in the
getimagesize() function. getimagesize() uses format specific internal
functions php_handle_iff() and php_handle_jpeg() which get stuck in
infinite loops when certain (invalid) size parameters are read from
the image. In web applications that allow users to upload arbitrary
image files, a remote attacker could render the server unavailable by
uploading specially crafted images.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.0

Family: Ubuntu Local Security Checks
