Package : php5
CVE ID : CVE-2014-3538 CVE-2014-3587 CVE-2014-3597 CVE-2014-4670

This update corrects a packaging error for the packages released in
DSA-3008-1. The new sessionclean script used in the updated cronjob in
/etc/cron.d/php5 was not installed into the php5-common package. No
other changes are introduced. For reference, the original advisory text

Several vulnerabilities were found in PHP, a general-purpose scripting
language commonly used for web application development. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems:


It was discovered that the original fix for CVE-2013-7345 did not
sufficiently address the problem. A remote attacker could still
cause a denial of service (CPU consumption) via a specially-crafted
input file that triggers backtracking during processing of an awk
regular expression rule.


It was discovered that the CDF parser of the fileinfo module does
not properly process malformed files in the Composite Document File
(CDF) format, leading to crashes.


It was discovered that the original fix for CVE-2014-4049 did not
completely address the issue. A malicious server or
man-in-the-middle attacker could cause a denial of service (crash)
and possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted DNS TXT record.


It was discovered that PHP incorrectly handled certain SPL
Iterators. A local attacker could use this flaw to cause PHP to
crash, resulting in a denial of service.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
version 5.4.4-14+deb7u13. In addition, this update contains several
bugfixes originally targeted for the upcoming Wheezy point release.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems will be fied soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your php5 packages.
