Synopsis

The specific version of PHP that the system is running is reportedly affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The specific version of PHP that the system is running is reportedly affected by the following vulnerabilities:

- PHP contains a flaw in the curl_unescape() function in ext/curl/interface.c that is triggered during the handling of string lengths. This may allow a remote attacker to trigger heap corruption and crash a program using the language.

- PHP contains an overflow condition in the mcrypt_generic() function in ext/mcrypt/mcrypt.c. The issue is triggered as user-supplied input is not properly validated. This may allow a remote attacker to cause a heap-based buffer overflow, resulting in a denial of service or potentially allowing the execution of arbitrary code.

Solution

It has been reported that this has been fixed. Please refer to the product listing for upgraded versions that address this vulnerability.
