Synopsis :

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

Description :

From Red Hat Security Advisory 2014:1824 :

Updated php packages that fix three security issues are now available
for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having Important
security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base
scores, which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each
vulnerability from the CVE links in the References section.

PHP is an HTML-embedded scripting language commonly used with the
Apache HTTP Server.

A buffer overflow flaw was found in the Exif extension. A specially
crafted JPEG or TIFF file could cause a PHP application using the
exif_thumbnail() function to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary
code with the privileges of the user running that PHP application.

A stack-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the way the xmlrpc
extension parsed dates in the ISO 8601 format. A specially crafted
XML-RPC request or response could possibly cause a PHP application to
crash. (CVE-2014-8626)

An integer overflow flaw was found in the way custom objects were
unserialized. Specially crafted input processed by the unserialize()
function could cause a PHP application to crash. (CVE-2014-3669)

All php users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain backported patches to correct these issues. After installing
the updated packages, the httpd daemon must be restarted for the
update to take effect.
