Debian Security Advisory
DSA-2943-1 php5 -- security update
- Date Reported:
- 01 Jun 2014
- Affected Packages:
- Security database references:
- In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2014-0185, CVE-2014-0237, CVE-2014-0238, CVE-2014-2270.
- More information:
Several vulnerabilities were found in PHP, a general-purpose scripting language commonly used for web application development:
The default PHP FPM socket permission has been changed from 0666 to 0660 to mitigate a security vulnerability (CVE-2014-0185) in PHP FPM that allowed any local user to run a PHP code under the active user of FPM process via crafted FastCGI client.
The default Debian setup now correctly sets the listen.owner and listen.group to www-data:www-data in default php-fpm.conf. If you have more FPM instances or a webserver not running under www-data user you need to adjust the configuration of FPM pools in /etc/php5/fpm/pool.d/ so the accessing process has rights to access the socket.
- CVE-2014-0237 /
Denial of service in the CDF parser of the fileinfo module.
Denial of service in the fileinfo module.
For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in version 5.4.4-14+deb7u10.
For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems will be fixed soon.
We recommend that you upgrade your php5 packages.
