PHP 5.5.x < 5.5.26 / 5.6.x < 5.6.10 Multiple Vulnerabilities

medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 8787
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 web server uses a version of PHP that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

Versions of PHP 5.5.x prior to 5.5.26, or 5.6.x prior to 5.6.10 are exposed to the following vulnerabilities :

- Multiple heap buffer overflow conditions exist in the bundled Perl-Compatible Regular Expression (PCRE) library due to improper validation of user-supplied input to the 'compile_branch()' and 'pcre_compile2()' functions. A remote attacker can exploit these conditions to cause a heap-based buffer overflow, resulting in a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-2325, CVE-2015-2326)
- A denial of service vulnerability exists in the bundled SQLite component due to improper handling of quotes in collation sequence names. A remote attacker can exploit this to cause uninitialized memory access, resulting in denial of service condition. (CVE-2015-3414)
- A denial of service vulnerability exists in the bundled SQLite component due to an improper implementation of comparison operators in the 'sqlite3VdbeExec()' function in 'vdbe.c'. A remote attacker can exploit this to cause an invalid free operation, resulting in a denial of service condition. (CVE-2015-3415)
- A denial of service vulnerability exists in the bundled SQLite component due to improper handling of precision and width values during floating-point conversions in the 'sqlite3VXPrintf()' function in 'printf.c'. A remote attacker can exploit this to cause a stack-based buffer overflow, resulting in a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-3416)
- A security bypass vulnerability exists due to a failure in multiple extensions to check for NULL bytes in a path when processing or reading a file. A remote attacker can exploit this, by combining the '\0' character with a safe file extension, to bypass access restrictions. (CVE-2015-4598)
- An arbitrary command injection vulnerability exists due to a flaw in the 'php_escape_shell_arg()' function in 'exec.c'. A remote attacker can exploit this, via the 'escapeshellarg()' PHP method, to inject arbitrary operating system commands. (CVE-2015-4642)
- A heap buffer overflow condition exists in the 'ftp_genlist()' function in 'ftp.c'. due to improper validation of user-supplied input. A remote attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-4643)
- A denial of service vulnerability exists due to a NULL pointer dereference flaw in the 'build_tablename()' function in 'pgsql.c'. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to cause an application crash. (CVE-2015-4644)

Solution

Apply the vendor patch or upgrade to PHP version 5.6.10 or later.
