High Nessus Plugin ID 108849

Synopsis

The remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.

Description

Stack-based buffer under-read in ext/standard/http_fopen_wrapper.c:php_stream_url_wrap_http_ex function when parsing HTTP response allows denial of service

In PHP through 5.6.33, 7.0.x before 7.0.28, 7.1.x through 7.1.14, and 7.2.x through 7.2.2, there is a stack-based buffer under-read while parsing an HTTP response in the php_stream_url_wrap_http_ex function in ext/standard/http_fopen_wrapper.c. This subsequently results in copying a large string. (CVE-2018-7584)

Run 'yum update php70' to update your system.

Run 'yum update php56' to update your system.
