Debian DSA-1330-1 : php5 - several vulnerabilities

critical Nessus Plugin ID 25677
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-related update.

Description

Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in PHP, a server-side, HTML-embedded scripting language, which may lead to the execution of arbitrary code. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems :

- CVE-2007-1399 Stefan Esser discovered that a buffer overflow in the zip extension allows the execution of arbitrary code.

- CVE-2007-1864 It was discovered that a buffer overflow in the xmlrpc extension allows the execution of arbitrary code.

The oldstable distribution (sarge) doesn't include php5.

Solution

Upgrade the PHP packages. Packages for the littleendian Mips architecture are not yet available, due to problems on the build host.
They will be provided later.

For the stable distribution (etch) these problems have been fixed in version 5.2.0-8+etch7.
