PHP 5.5.x < 5.5.13 'src/cdf.c' Multiple Vulnerabilities
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 74292
SynopsisThe remote web server uses a version of PHP that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
DescriptionAccording to its banner, the version of PHP 5.5.x installed on the remote host is a version prior to 5.5.13. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :
- A flaw exists with the 'cdf_unpack_summary_info()' function within 'src/cdf.c' where multiple file_printf calls occur when handling specially crafted CDF files.
This could allow a context dependent attacker to crash the web application using PHP. (CVE-2014-0237)
- A flaw exists with the 'cdf_read_property_info()' function within 'src/cdf.c' where an infinite loop occurs when handling specially crafted CDF files. This could allow a context dependent attacker to crash the web application using PHP. (CVE-2014-0238)
- An out-of-bounds read exists in printf. (Bug #67249)
Note that Nessus has not attempted to exploit these issues, but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
SolutionUpgrade to PHP version 5.5.13 or later.
