Debian Security Advisory
DLA-1490-1 php5 -- LTS security update
- Date Reported:
- 01 Sep 2018
- Affected Packages:
- Security database references:
- In the Debian bugtracking system: Bug 890266.
In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2018-14851, CVE-2018-14883.
- More information:
Two vulnerabilities have been discovered in php5, a server-side, HTML-embedded scripting language. One (CVE-2018-14851) results in a potential denial of service (out-of-bounds read and application crash) via a crafted JPEG file. The other (CVE-2018-14883) is an Integer Overflow that leads to a heap-based buffer over-read.
Additionally, a previously introduced patch for CVE-2017-7272 was found to negatively affect existing PHP applications (#890266). As a result of the negative effects and the fact that the security team has marked the CVE in question as "ignore," the patch has been dropped.
For Debian 8
Jessie, these problems have been fixed in version 5.6.37+dfsg-0+deb8u1.
We recommend that you upgrade your php5 packages.
