Debian DSA-1572-1 : php5 - several vulnerabilities

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 32306


The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.


Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in PHP, a server-side, HTML-embedded scripting language. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems :

- CVE-2007-3806 The glob function allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service and possibly execute arbitrary code via an invalid value of the flags parameter.

- CVE-2008-1384 Integer overflow allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service and possibly have other impact via a printf format parameter with a large width specifier.

- CVE-2008-2050 Stack-based buffer overflow in the FastCGI SAPI.

- CVE-2008-2051 The escapeshellcmd API function could be attacked via incomplete multibyte chars.


Upgrade the php5 package.

For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in version 5.2.0-8+etch11.
