SuSE 11.3 Security Update : PHP 5.3 (SAT Patch Number 9537)

High Nessus Plugin ID 76909

Synopsis

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

Description

PHP 5.3 has been updated to fix several security problems :

- The SPL component in PHP incorrectly anticipated that certain data structures will have the array data type after unserialization, which allowed remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted string that triggers use of a Hashtable destructor, related to 'type confusion' issues in (1) ArrayObject and (2) SPLObjectStorage. (CVE-2014-3515)

- The cdf_read_short_sector function in cdf.c in file before 5.19, as used in the Fileinfo component in PHP allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (assertion failure and application exit) via a crafted CDF file. (CVE-2014-0207)

- Buffer overflow in the mconvert function in softmagic.c in file before 5.19, as used in the Fileinfo component in PHP allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a crafted Pascal string in a FILE_PSTRING conversion. (CVE-2014-3478)

- The cdf_check_stream_offset function in cdf.c in file before 5.19, as used in the Fileinfo component in PHP relied on incorrect sector-size data, which allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a crafted stream offset in a CDF file. (CVE-2014-3479)

- The cdf_count_chain function in cdf.c in file before 5.19, as used in the Fileinfo component in PHP did not properly validate sector-count data, which allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a crafted CDF file.
(CVE-2014-3480)

- The cdf_read_property_info function in file before 5.19, as used in the Fileinfo component in PHP did not properly validate a stream offset, which allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a crafted CDF file. (CVE-2014-3487)

- Use-after-free vulnerability in ext/spl/spl_dllist.c in the SPL component in PHP allowed context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact via crafted iterator usage within applications in certain web-hosting environments.
(CVE-2014-4670)

- Use-after-free vulnerability in ext/spl/spl_array.c in the SPL component in PHP allowed context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact via crafted ArrayIterator usage within applications in certain web-hosting environments.
(CVE-2014-4698)

- The phpinfo implementation in ext/standard/info.c in PHP did not ensure use of the string data type for the PHP_AUTH_PW, PHP_AUTH_TYPE, PHP_AUTH_USER, and PHP_SELF variables, which might allow context-dependent attackers to obtain sensitive information from process memory by using the integer data type with crafted values, related to a 'type confusion' vulnerability, as demonstrated by reading a private SSL key in an Apache HTTP Server web-hosting environment with mod_ssl and a PHP 5.3.x mod_php. (CVE-2014-4721)
