Synopsis

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

Description

exif_process_IFD_in_MAKERNOTE in ext/exif/exif.c in PHP 7.2.x before 7.2.8 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read and application crash) via a crafted JPEG file.(CVE-2018-14851)

exif_read_from_impl in ext/exif/exif.c in PHP 7.2.x through 7.2.7 allows attackers to trigger a use-after-free (in exif_read_from_file) because it closes a stream that it is not responsible for closing. The vulnerable code is reachable through the PHP exif_read_data function.(CVE-2018-12882)

An issue was discovered in PHP 7.2.x before 7.2.8. An Integer Overflow leads to a heap-based buffer over-read in exif_thumbnail_extract of exif.c.(CVE-2018-14883)

Solution

Run 'yum update php72' to update your system.
