Description

Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in PHP, a server-side, HTML-embedded scripting language, which may lead to the execution of arbitrary code. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems:

Stefan Esser discovered that a buffer overflow in the zip extension allows the execution of arbitrary code.

It was discovered that a buffer overflow in the xmlrpc extension allows the execution of arbitrary code.

The oldstable distribution (sarge) doesn't include php5.

For the stable distribution (etch) these problems have been fixed in version 5.2.0-8+etch7.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in version 5.2.2-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your PHP packages. Packages for the littleendian Mips architecture are not yet available, due to problems on the build host. They will be provided later.
