Debian DSA-2639-1 : php5 - several vulnerabilities

High Nessus Plugin ID 65033

Synopsis

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

Description

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in PHP, the web scripting language. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following issues :

- CVE-2013-1635 If a PHP application accepted untrusted SOAP object input remotely from clients, an attacker could read system files readable for the webserver.

- CVE-2013-1643 The soap.wsdl_cache_dir function did not take PHP open_basedir restrictions into account. Note that Debian advises against relying on open_basedir restrictions for security.

Solution

Upgrade the php5 packages.

For the stable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in version 5.3.3-7+squeeze15.
