- Date Reported:
- 29 Jun 2020
- Affected Packages:
- Security database references:
- In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2019-11048.
- More information:
It has been discovered, that a vulnerability in php5, a server-side, HTML-embedded scripting language, could lead to exhausted disk space on the server. When using overly long filenames or field names, a memory limit could be hit which results in stopping the upload but not cleaning up behind.
Further the embedded version of
fileis vulnerable to CVE-2019-18218. As it can not be exploited the same in php5 as in file, this issue is not handled as an own CVE but just as a bug, that has been fixed here (restrict the number of CDF_VECTOR elements to prevent a heap-based buffer overflow (4-byte out-of-bounds write)).
For Debian 8
Jessie, this problem has been fixed in version 5.6.40+dfsg-0+deb8u12.
We recommend that you upgrade your php5 packages.
