critical Nessus Plugin ID 123528
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

Several vulnerabilities have been found in php5, a server-side, HTML-embedded scripting language.

CVE-2019-9637 rename() across the device may allow unwanted access during processing.

CVE-2019-9638, CVE-2019-9639 Uninitialized read in exif_process_IFD_in_MAKERNOTE.

CVE-2019-9640 Invalid Read on exif_process_SOFn.

CVE-2019-9641 Uninitialized read in exif_process_IFD_in_TIFF.

CVE-2019-9022 An issue during parsing of DNS responses allows a hostile DNS server to misuse memcpy, which leads to a read operation past an allocated buffer.

For Debian 8 'Jessie', these problems have been fixed in version 5.6.40+dfsg-0+deb8u2.

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.
