Synopsis

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

Multiple vulnerabilities has been discovered and corrected in php :

Use-after-free vulnerability in ext/spl/spl_array.c in the SPL component in PHP through 5.5.14 allows 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).

Use-after-free vulnerability in ext/spl/spl_dllist.c in the SPL component in PHP through 5.5.14 allows 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).

file before 5.19 does not properly restrict the amount of data read during a regex search, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (CPU consumption) via a crafted file that triggers backtracking during processing of an awk rule. NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2013-7345 (CVE-2014-3538).

The updated php packages have been upgraded to the 5.5.15 version and patched to resolve these security flaws.

Additionally, the jsonc extension has been upgraded to the 1.3.6 version and the PECL packages which requires so has been rebuilt for php-5.5.15.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
