Synopsis

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.

Description

Florent Hochwelker discovered that PHP incorrectly handled certain EXIF headers in JPEG files. A remote attacker could exploit this issue to view sensitive information or cause the PHP server to crash.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Update the affected php5-cgi and / or php5-cli packages.
