critical Nessus Plugin ID 110928
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.

- CVE-2018-7584 Buffer underread in parsing HTTP responses

- CVE-2018-10545 Dumpable FPM child processes allowed the bypass of opcache access controls

- CVE-2018-10546 Denial of service via infinite loop in convert.iconv stream filter

- CVE-2018-10548 Denial of service via malformed LDAP server responses

- CVE-2018-10549 Out-of-bounds read when parsing malformed JPEG files


Upgrade the php7.0 packages.
