SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.
DescriptionStefan Esser discovered that the implementation of the max_input_vars configuration variable in a recent PHP security update was flawed such that it allows remote attackers to crash PHP or potentially execute code.
SolutionUpgrade the php5 packages.
For the oldstable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in version 5.2.6.dfsg.1-1+lenny16.
For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in version 5.3.3-7+squeeze7.
