Synopsis

The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

This update for php5 fixes the following security issues :

- CVE-2016-4073: A remote attacker could have caused denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary code, due to incorrect handling of string length calculations in mb_strcut() (bsc#977003)

- CVE-2015-8867: The PHP function openssl_random_pseudo_bytes() did not return cryptographically secure random bytes (bsc#977005)

- CVE-2016-4070: The libxml_disable_entity_loader() setting was shared between threads, which could have resulted in XML external entity injection and entity expansion issues (bsc#976997)

- CVE-2015-8866: A remote attacker could have caused denial of service due to incorrect handling of large strings in php_raw_url_encode() (bsc#976996)

- CVE-2016-4071: A remote attacker could have caused denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary code, due to incorrect handling of string formatting in php_snmp_error() (bsc#977000)

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