Debian DSA-1647-1 : php5 - several vulnerabilities
High Nessus Plugin ID 34355
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-2008-3658 Buffer overflow in the imageloadfont function allows a denial of service or code execution through a crafted font file. - CVE-2008-3659 Buffer overflow in the memnstr function allows a denial of service or code execution via a crafted delimiter parameter to the explode function. - CVE-2008-3660 Denial of service is possible in the FastCGI module by a remote attacker by making a request with multiple dots before the extension.
Upgrade the php5 package. For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in version 5.2.0-8+etch13.
