Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : php (MDVSA-2013:221)

This script is Copyright (C) 2013-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

A vulnerability has been discovered and corrected in php :

The openssl_x509_parse function in openssl.c in the OpenSSL module in
PHP before 5.4.18 and 5.5.x before 5.5.2 does not properly handle a
'\0' character in a domain name in the Subject Alternative Name field
of an X.509 certificate, which allows man-in-the-middle attackers to
spoof arbitrary SSL servers via a crafted certificate issued by a
legitimate Certification Authority, a related issue to CVE-2009-2408
(CVE-2013-4248).

Additionally a patch has been applied to fix an UMR (Unitialized
Memory Read) bug in the original fix for CVE-2013-4248.

The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
