Amazon Linux AMI : php (ALAS-2013-262)

high Nessus Plugin ID 71574

Synopsis

The remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.

Description

The asn1_time_to_time_t function in ext/openssl/openssl.c in PHP before 5.3.28, 5.4.x before 5.4.23, and 5.5.x before 5.5.7 does not properly parse (1) notBefore and (2) notAfter timestamps in X.509 certificates, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (memory corruption) via a crafted certificate that is not properly handled by the openssl_x509_parse function.

Solution

Run 'yum update php' to update your system.
