Synopsis

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

Description

A flaw was found in the way PHP parsed multipart HTTP POST requests. A specially crafted request could cause PHP to use an excessive amount of CPU time. (CVE-2015-4024)

An uninitialized pointer use flaw was found in PHP's Exif extension. A specially crafted JPEG or TIFF file could cause a PHP application using the exif_read_data() function to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running that PHP application. (CVE-2015-0232)

An integer overflow flaw leading to a heap-based buffer overflow was found in the way PHP's FTP extension parsed file listing FTP server responses. A malicious FTP server could use this flaw to cause a PHP application to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2015-4022)

Multiple flaws were discovered in the way PHP performed object unserialization. Specially crafted input processed by the unserialize() function could cause a PHP application to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-0273, CVE-2015-2787, CVE-2015-4147, CVE-2015-4148, CVE-2015-4599, CVE-2015-4600, CVE-2015-4601, CVE-2015-4602, CVE-2015-4603)

It was found that certain PHP functions did not properly handle file names containing a NULL character. A remote attacker could possibly use this flaw to make a PHP script access unexpected files and bypass intended file system access restrictions. (CVE-2015-4026, CVE-2015-3411, CVE-2015-3412, CVE-2015-4598)

Multiple flaws were found in the way the way PHP's Phar extension parsed Phar archives. A specially crafted archive could cause PHP to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code when opened.
(CVE-2015-2301, CVE-2015-2783, CVE-2015-3307, CVE-2015-3329, CVE-2015-4021)

A heap buffer overflow flaw was found in the enchant_broker_request_dict() function of PHP's enchant extension. An attacker able to make a PHP application enchant dictionaries could possibly cause it to crash. (CVE-2014-9705)

A buffer over-read flaw was found in the GD library used by the PHP gd extension. A specially crafted GIF file could cause a PHP application using the imagecreatefromgif() function to crash. (CVE-2014-9709)

A double free flaw was found in zend_ts_hash_graceful_destroy() function in the PHP ZTS module. This flaw could possibly cause a PHP application to crash. (CVE-2014-9425)

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