Scientific Linux Security Update : php53 on SL5.x i386/x86_64

High Nessus Plugin ID 78852

Synopsis

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

Description

A buffer overflow flaw was found in the Exif extension. A specially crafted JPEG or TIFF file could cause a PHP application using the exif_thumbnail() function to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running that PHP application.
(CVE-2014-3670)

An integer overflow flaw was found in the way custom objects were unserialized. Specially crafted input processed by the unserialize() function could cause a PHP application to crash. (CVE-2014-3669)

An out-of-bounds read flaw was found in the way the File Information (fileinfo) extension parsed Executable and Linkable Format (ELF) files. A remote attacker could use this flaw to crash a PHP application using fileinfo via a specially crafted ELF file.
(CVE-2014-3710)

An out of bounds read flaw was found in the way the xmlrpc extension parsed dates in the ISO 8601 format. A specially crafted XML-RPC request or response could possibly cause a PHP application to crash.
(CVE-2014-3668)

After installing the updated packages, the httpd daemon must be restarted for the update to take effect.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
