Synopsis
========

Multiple vulnerabilities were found in PHP, the worst of which lead to
remote execution of arbitrary code.

Background
==========

PHP is a widely-used general-purpose scripting language that is
especially suited for Web development and can be embedded into HTML.

Affected packages
=================

    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package              /     Vulnerable     /            Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  dev-lang/php                 < 5.3.15                  >= 5.3.15
                                  < 5.4.5                    >= 5.4.5
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     # Package 1 only applies to users of these architectures:
       arm

Description
===========

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in PHP. Please review the
CVE identifiers referenced below for details.

Impact
======

A remote attacker could execute arbitrary code with the privileges of
the process, cause a Denial of Service condition, obtain sensitive
information, create arbitrary files, conduct directory traversal
attacks, bypass protection mechanisms, or perform further attacks with
unspecified impact.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All PHP users should upgrade to the latest version:

  # emerge --sync
  # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-lang/php-5.3.15"

  # emerge --sync
  # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-lang/php-5.4.5"
