SuSE 11.1 Security Update : PHP5 (SAT Patch Number 5964)

High Nessus Plugin ID 58740


The remote SuSE 11 host is missing one or more security updates.


This update of php5 fixes multiple security flaws :

- A php5 upload filename injection was fixed.

- A integer overflow in the EXIF extension was fixed that could be used by attackers to crash the interpreter or potentially read memory. (CVE-2011-4566)

- Multiple NULL pointer dereferences were fixed that could lead to crashes. (CVE-2011-3182)

- An integer overflow in the PHP calendar extension was fixed that could have led to crashes. (CVE-2011-1466)

- A symlink vulnerability in the PEAR installer could be exploited by local attackers to inject code.

- missing checks of return values could allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference). (CVE-2011-4153)

- denial of service via hash collisions. (CVE-2011-4885)

- specially crafted XSLT stylesheets could allow remote attackers to create arbitrary files with arbitrary content. (CVE-2012-0057)

- remote attackers can cause a denial of service via specially crafted input to an application that attempts to perform Tidy::diagnose operations. (CVE-2012-0781)

- applications that use a PDO driver were prone to denial of service flaws which could be exploited remotely.

- memory leak in the timezone functionality could allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption). (CVE-2012-0789)

- a stack-based buffer overflow in the php5 Suhosin extension could allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a long string that is used in a Set-Cookie HTTP header. (CVE-2012-0807)

- this fixes an incorrect fix for CVE-2011-4885 which could allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a request containing a large number of variables.

- temporary changes to the magic_quotes_gpc directive during the importing of environment variables is not properly performed which makes it easier for remote attackers to conduct SQL injections. (CVE-2012-0831)

Also the following bugs have been fixed :

- allow uploading files bigger than 2GB for 64bit systems [bnc#709549]

- amend README.SUSE to discourage using apache module with apache2-worker [bnc#728671]
