Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

[CVE-2014-3515]: fix unserialize() SPL ArrayObject / SPLObjectStorage Type Confusion

[CVE-2014-0207]: fileinfo: cdf_read_short_sector insufficient boundary check

[CVE-2014-3480]: fileinfo: cdf_count_chain insufficient boundary check

[CVE-2014-4721]: The phpinfo implementation in ext/standard/info.c in PHP before 5.4.30 and 5.5.x before 5.5.14 does 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.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Upgrade the affected packages.
