Several issues have been discovered in PHP (recursive acronym for PHP:
Hypertext Preprocessor), a widely-used open source general-purpose
scripting language that is especially suited for web development and can
be embedded into HTML.

* CVE-2016-2554
Stack-based buffer overflow in ext/phar/tar.c allows remote
attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or
possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted TAR archive.
* CVE-2016-3141
Use-after-free vulnerability in wddx.c in the WDDX extension allows
remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and
application crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact by
triggering a wddx_deserialize call on XML data containing a crafted
var element.
* CVE-2016-3142
The phar_parse_zipfile function in zip.c in the PHAR extension in
PHP before 5.5.33 and 5.6.x before 5.6.19 allows remote attackers to
obtain sensitive information from process memory or cause a denial
of service (out-of-bounds read and application crash) by placing a
PK\x05\x06 signature at an invalid location.
* CVE-2016-4342
ext/phar/phar_object.c in PHP before 5.5.32, 5.6.x before 5.6.18,
and 7.x before 7.0.3 mishandles zero-length uncompressed data, which
allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (heap memory
corruption) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted
(1) TAR, (2) ZIP, or (3) PHAR archive.
* CVE-2016-9934
ext/wddx/wddx.c in PHP before 5.6.28 and 7.x before 7.0.13 allows
remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer
dereference) via crafted serialized data in a wddxPacket XML
document, as demonstrated by a PDORow string.
* CVE-2016-9935
The php_wddx_push_element function in ext/wddx/wddx.c in PHP before
5.6.29 and 7.x before 7.0.14 allows remote attackers to cause a
denial of service (out-of-bounds read and memory corruption) or
possibly have unspecified other impact via an empty boolean element
in a wddxPacket XML document.
* CVE-2016-10158
The exif_convert_any_to_int function in ext/exif/exif.c in PHP
before 5.6.30, 7.0.x before 7.0.15, and 7.1.x before 7.1.1 allows
remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash)
via crafted EXIF data that triggers an attempt to divide the minimum
representable negative integer by -1.
* CVE-2016-10159
Integer overflow in the phar_parse_pharfile function in
ext/phar/phar.c in PHP before 5.6.30 and 7.0.x before 7.0.15 allows
remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption or
application crash) via a truncated manifest entry in a PHAR archive.
* CVE-2016-10160
Off-by-one error in the phar_parse_pharfile function in
ext/phar/phar.c in PHP before 5.6.30 and 7.0.x before 7.0.15 allows
remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption) or
possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted PHAR archive with an
alias mismatch.
* CVE-2016-10161
The object_common1 function in ext/standard/var_unserializer.c in
PHP before 5.6.30, 7.0.x before 7.0.15, and 7.1.x before 7.1.1
allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (buffer
over-read and application crash) via crafted serialized data that is
mishandled in a finish_nested_data call.
* BUG-71323.patch
Output of stream_get_meta_data can be falsified by its input
* BUG-70979.patch
Crash on bad SOAP request
* BUG-71039.patch
exec functions ignore length but look for NULL termination
* BUG-71459.patch
Integer overflow in iptcembed()
* BUG-71391.patch
NULL Pointer Dereference in phar_tar_setupmetadata()
* BUG-71335.patch
Type confusion vulnerability in WDDX packet deserialization
