Amazon Linux AMI : php55 (ALAS-2014-362)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 78305

Synopsis

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

Description

The cdf_unpack_summary_info function in cdf.c in the Fileinfo component in PHP before 5.4.29 and 5.5.x before 5.5.13 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (performance degradation) by triggering many file_printf calls.

The cdf_read_property_info function in cdf.c in the Fileinfo component in PHP before 5.4.29 and 5.5.x before 5.5.13 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop or out-of-bounds memory access) via a vector that (1) has zero length or (2) is too long.

Solution

Run 'yum update php55' to update your system.
