SUSE SLES11 Security Update : PHP5 (SUSE-SU-2014:0868-1)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 83630
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

PHP5 has been updated to fix two security vulnerabilities :

- Heap-based buffer overflow in DNS TXT record parsing (CVE-2014-4049)

- NULL pointer dereference in GD XPM decoder (CVE-2014-2497)

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

Alternatively you can run the command listed for your product :

SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP2 LTSS :
