Description

The following security-related issues were resolved :

Out-of-bounds read in imagescale (CVE-2013-7456)

Integer underflow causing arbitrary null write in fread/gzread (CVE-2016-5096)

The phar_make_dirstream function in ext/phar/dirstream.c in PHP before 5.6.18 and 7.x before 7.0.3 mishandles zero-size ././@LongLink files, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (uninitialized pointer dereference) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted TAR archive.

Integer overflow in php_html_entities() (CVE-2016-5094)
