openSUSE Security Update : php5 (openSUSE-2014-471)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 76957

Synopsis

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description

php5 was updated to fix security issues :

CVE-2014-4670: 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-2014-4698: 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-2014-4721: 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.

Solution

Update the affected php5 packages.
