Posted on: 02/06/2012 09:01 PM

A PHP 5 security update has been released for Debian 5.0

- -------------------------------------------------------------------------
Debian Security Advisory DSA-2403-2 security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/ Thijs Kinkhorst
February 06, 2012 http://www.debian.org/security/faq
- -------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : php5
Vulnerability : code injection
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CVE-2012-0830

Stefan Esser discovered that the implementation of the max_input_vars
configuration variable in a recent PHP security update was flawed such
that it allows remote attackers to crash PHP or potentially execute
code.

This update adds packages for the oldstable distribution, which were
missing from the original advisory. The problem has been fixed in
version 5.2.6.dfsg.1-1+lenny16, installed into the security archive
on 3 Feb 2012.

For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
version 5.3.3-7+squeeze7.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 5.3.10-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your php5 packages.
