FreeBSD : php -- ZipArchive segfault with FL_UNCHANGED on empty archive (fe853666-56ce-11e0-9668-001fd0d616cf)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 52987
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.


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


US-CERT/NIST reports :

The _zip_name_locate function in zip_name_locate.c in the Zip extension in PHP before 5.3.6 does not properly handle a ZIPARCHIVE::FL_UNCHANGED argument, which might allow context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via an empty ZIP archive that is processed with a (1) locateName or (2) statName operation.


Update the affected package.
