Debian DLA-1373-1 : php5 security update

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 109657

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

Several issues have been discovered in PHP (recursive acronym for PHP:
Hypertext Preprocessor), a widely-used open source general-purpose scripting language that is especially suited for web development and can be embedded into HTML.

CVE-2018-10545

Dumpable FPM child processes allow bypassing opcache access controls because fpm_unix.c makes a PR_SET_DUMPABLE prctl call, allowing one user (in a multiuser environment) to obtain sensitive information from the process memory of a second user's PHP applications by running gcore on the PID of the PHP-FPM worker process.

CVE-2018-10547

There is a reflected XSS on the PHAR 403 and 404 error pages via request data of a request for a .phar file. NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2018-5712.

CVE-2018-10548

ext/ldap/ldap.c allows remote LDAP servers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and application crash) because of mishandling of the ldap_get_dn return value.

For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 5.4.45-0+deb7u14.

We recommend that you upgrade your php5 packages.

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

Solution

Upgrade the affected packages.
