medium Nessus Plugin ID 52986


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


US-CERT/NIST reports :

exif.c in the Exif extension in PHP before 5.3.6 on 64-bit platforms performs an incorrect cast, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via an image with a crafted Image File Directory (IFD) that triggers a buffer over-read.


Update the affected package.
