Debian DLA-341-1 : php5 security update

critical Nessus Plugin ID 86794
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 Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

- CVE-2015-6831 Use after free vulnerability was found in unserialize() function. We can create ZVAL and free it via Serializable::unserialize. However the unserialize() will still allow to use R: or r: to set references to that already freed memory. It is possible to use-after-free attack and execute arbitrary code remotely.

- CVE-2015-6832 Dangling pointer in the unserialization of ArrayObject items.

- CVE-2015-6833 Files extracted from archive may be placed outside of destination directory

- CVE-2015-6834 Use after free vulnerability was found in unserialize() function. We can create ZVAL and free it via Serializable::unserialize. However the unserialize() will still allow to use R: or r: to set references to that already freed memory. It is possible to use-after-free attack and execute arbitrary code remotely.

- CVE-2015-6836 A type confusion occurs within SOAP serialize_function_call due to an insufficient validation of the headers field. In the SoapClient's
__call method, the verify_soap_headers_array check is applied only to headers retrieved from zend_parse_parameters; problem is that a few lines later, soap_headers could be updated or even replaced with values from the __default_headers object fields.

- CVE-2015-6837 The XSLTProcessor class misses a few checks on the input from the libxslt library. The valuePop() function call is able to return NULL pointer and php does not check that.

- CVE-2015-6838 The XSLTProcessor class misses a few checks on the input from the libxslt library. The valuePop() function call is able to return NULL pointer and php does not check that.

- CVE-2015-7803 A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the way PHP's Phar extension parsed Phar archives. A specially crafted archive could cause PHP to crash.

- CVE-2015-7804 An uninitialized pointer use flaw was found in the phar_make_dirstream() function of PHP's Phar extension. A specially crafted phar file in the ZIP format with a directory entry with a file name '/ZIP' could cause a PHP application function to crash.

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.
