Debian DLA-2160-1 : php5 security update

medium Nessus Plugin ID 134955
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

Two security issues have been identified and fixed in php5, a server-side, HTML-embedded scripting language.

CVE-2020-7062 is about a possible NULL pointer derefernce, which would likely lead to a crash, during a failed upload with progress tracking.
CVE-2020-7063 is about wrong file permissions of files added to tar with Phar::buildFromIterator when extracting them again.

For Debian 8 'Jessie', these problems have been fixed in version 5.6.40+dfsg-0+deb8u10.

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.
