SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.
DescriptionSeveral vulnerabilities were found in PHP, a general-purpose scripting language commonly used for web application development.
As announced in DSA 3064-1 it has been decided to follow the stable 5.4.x releases for the Wheezy php5 packages. Consequently the vulnerabilities are addressed by upgrading PHP to a new upstream version 5.4.36, which includes additional bug fixes, new features and possibly incompatible changes. Please refer to the upstream changelog for more information :
Two additional patches were applied on top of the imported new upstream version. An out-of-bounds read flaw was fixed which could lead php5-cgi to crash. Moreover a bug with php5-pgsql in combination with PostgreSQL 9.1 was fixed (Debian Bug #773182).
SolutionUpgrade the php5 packages.
For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in version 5.4.36-0+deb7u1.
