Published: 2018-02-07 23:00:00
CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

CVSS Base Vector:
AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:N/A:P

Solution Type:
Vendor Patch

Detection Type:
Linux Distribution Package

Affected Versions:
php5 on Debian Linux

Recommendations:
For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 5.4.45-0+deb7u9. We recommend that you upgrade your php5 Linux Distribution Packages.

Summary:
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-2016-10397 Incorrect handling of various URI components in the URL parser could be used by attackers to bypass hostname-specific URL checks. CVE-2017-11143 An invalid free in the WDDX deserialization of boolean parameters could be used by attackers able to inject XML for deserialization to crash the PHP interpreter. CVE-2017-11144 The openssl extension PEM sealing code did not check the return value of the OpenSSL sealing function, which could lead to a crash of the PHP interpreter. CVE-2017-11145 Lack of a bounds check in the date extension's timelib_meridian parsing code could be used by attackers able to supply date strings to leak information from the interpreter. CVE-2017-11147 The PHAR archive handler could be used by attackers supplying malicious archive files to crash the PHP interpreter or potentially disclose information due to a buffer over-read in the phar_parse_pharfile function in ext/phar/phar.c.

Detection Method:
This check tests the installed software version using the apt Linux Distribution Package manager.

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
