Debian DLA-646-1 : zendframework security update

critical Nessus Plugin ID 93869


The remote Debian host is missing a security update.


CVE-2016-4861 The implementation of ORDER BY and GROUP BY in Zend_Db_Select remained prone to SQL injection when a combination of SQL expressions and comments were used. This security patch provides a comprehensive solution that identifies and removes comments prior to checking validity of the statement to ensure no SQLi vectors occur.

For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 1.11.13-1.1+deb7u5.

We recommend that you upgrade your zendframework packages.

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.


Upgrade the affected packages.
