FreeBSD : PHP5 -- Heap corruption in XML parser (31b145f2-d9d3-49a9-8023-11cf742205dc)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 68917
SynopsisThe remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.
DescriptionThe PHP development team reports :
ext/xml/xml.c in PHP before 5.3.27 does not properly consider parsing depth, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (heap memory corruption) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted document that is processed by the xml_parse_into_struct function.
SolutionUpdate the affected package.
