The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.
This update for php5 fixes the following security issues : - CVE-2016-6294: The locale_accept_from_http function in ext/intl/locale/locale_methods.c did not properly restrict calls to the ICU uloc_acceptLanguageFromHTTP function, which allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a call with a long argument (bsc#1035111). - CVE-2017-9227: A stack out-of-bounds read occurs in mbc_enc_len() during regular expression searching. (bsc#1040883) - CVE-2017-9226: A heap out-of-bounds write or read occurs in next_state_val() during regular expression compilation. (bsc#1040889) - CVE-2017-9224: A stack out-of-bounds read occurs in match_at() during regular expression searching. (bsc#1040891) 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.
