SuSE 11.3 Security Update : PHP 5.3 (SAT Patch Number 9537)

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


Synopsis :

The remote SuSE 11 host is missing one or more security updates.

Description :

PHP 5.3 has been updated to fix several security problems :

- The SPL component in PHP incorrectly anticipated that
certain data structures will have the array data type
after unserialization, which allowed remote attackers to
execute arbitrary code via a crafted string that
triggers use of a Hashtable destructor, related to 'type
confusion' issues in (1) ArrayObject and (2)
SPLObjectStorage. (CVE-2014-3515)

- The cdf_read_short_sector function in cdf.c in file
before 5.19, as used in the Fileinfo component in PHP
allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(assertion failure and application exit) via a crafted
CDF file. (CVE-2014-0207)

- Buffer overflow in the mconvert function in softmagic.c
in file before 5.19, as used in the Fileinfo component
in PHP allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of
service (application crash) via a crafted Pascal string
in a FILE_PSTRING conversion. (CVE-2014-3478)

- The cdf_check_stream_offset function in cdf.c in file
before 5.19, as used in the Fileinfo component in PHP
relied on incorrect sector-size data, which allowed
remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(application crash) via a crafted stream offset in a CDF
file. (CVE-2014-3479)

- The cdf_count_chain function in cdf.c in file before
5.19, as used in the Fileinfo component in PHP did not
properly validate sector-count data, which allowed
remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(application crash) via a crafted CDF file.
(CVE-2014-3480)

- The cdf_read_property_info function in file before 5.19,
as used in the Fileinfo component in PHP did not
properly validate a stream offset, which allowed remote
attackers to cause a denial of service (application
crash) via a crafted CDF file. (CVE-2014-3487)

- Use-after-free vulnerability in ext/spl/spl_dllist.c in
the SPL component in PHP allowed context-dependent
attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly have
unspecified other impact via crafted iterator usage
within applications in certain web-hosting environments.
(CVE-2014-4670)

- Use-after-free vulnerability in ext/spl/spl_array.c in
the SPL component in PHP allowed context-dependent
attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly have
unspecified other impact via crafted ArrayIterator usage
within applications in certain web-hosting environments.
(CVE-2014-4698)

- The phpinfo implementation in ext/standard/info.c in PHP
did not ensure use of the string data type for the
PHP_AUTH_PW, PHP_AUTH_TYPE, PHP_AUTH_USER, and PHP_SELF
variables, which might allow context-dependent attackers
to obtain sensitive information from process memory by
using the integer data type with crafted values, related
to a 'type confusion' vulnerability, as demonstrated by
reading a private SSL key in an Apache HTTP Server
web-hosting environment with mod_ssl and a PHP 5.3.x
mod_php. (CVE-2014-4721)
