Debian DLA-18-1 : php5 security update
High Nessus Plugin ID 82165
SynopsisThe 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.
