Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.

Description :

The PHP development team reports :

ext/xml/xml.c in PHP before 5.3.27 does not properly consider parsing
depth, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(heap memory corruption) or possibly have unspecified other impact via
a crafted document that is processed by the xml_parse_into_struct
function.
