- CVE-2016-10158: The exif_convert_any_to_int function in ext/exif/exif.c in PHP allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via crafted EXIF data that triggers an attempt to divide the minimum representable negative integer by -1. (bsc#1022219)

- CVE-2016-10159: Integer overflow in the phar_parse_pharfile function in ext/phar/phar.c in PHP allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption or application crash) via a truncated manifest entry in a PHAR archive.

- CVE-2016-10160: Off-by-one error in the phar_parse_pharfile function in ext/phar/phar.c in PHP allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted PHAR archive with an alias mismatch.
