Debian Security Report Summary

Debian Security Advisory DSA-2943-1                                 Moritz Muehlenhoff

Package        : php5
CVE ID         : CVE-2014-0185 CVE-2014-0237 CVE-2014-0238 CVE-2014-2270

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 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 / CVE-2014-0238:

    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.
