SUSE SLES11 Security Update : php53 (SUSE-SU-2015:1466-1)

This script is Copyright (C) 2015-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.

Description :

PHP was updated to fix two security issues.

The following vulnerabilities were fixed :

- CVE-2015-5589: PHP could be crashed when processing an
invalid file with the 'phar' extension with a segfault
in Phar::convertToData, leading to Denial of Service
(DOS) (bsc#938721)

- CVE-2015-5590: PHP could be crashed or have unspecified
other impact due to a buffer overlow in
phar_fix_filepath (bsc#938719)

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the SUSE security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
