EulerOS 2.0 SP8 : php (EulerOS-SA-2021-2810)

high Nessus Plugin ID 156313

Synopsis

The remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.

Description

According to the versions of the php packages installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- In PHP versions 7.3.x up to and including 7.3.31, 7.4.x below 7.4.25 and 8.0.x below 8.0.12, when running PHP FPM SAPI with main FPM daemon process running as root and child worker processes running as lower- privileged users, it is possible for the child processes to access memory shared with the main process and write to it, modifying it in a way that would cause the root process to conduct invalid memory reads and writes, which can be used to escalate privileges from local unprivileged user to the root user.
(CVE-2021-21703)

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

Solution

Update the affected php packages.
