Description

It was found that the fix for CVE-2012-1571 was incomplete; the File Information (fileinfo) extension did not correctly parse certain Composite Document Format (CDF) files. A remote attacker could use this flaw to crash a PHP application using fileinfo via a specially crafted CDF file. (CVE-2014-3587)

A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the gdImageCreateFromXpm() function of PHP's gd extension. A remote attacker could use this flaw to crash a PHP application using gd via a specially crafted X PixMap (XPM) file. (CVE-2014-2497)

Multiple buffer over-read flaws were found in the php_parserr() function of PHP. A malicious DNS server or a man-in-the-middle attacker could possibly use this flaw to execute arbitrary code as the PHP interpreter if a PHP application used the dns_get_record() function to perform a DNS query. (CVE-2014-3597)

Two use-after-free flaws were found in the way PHP handled certain Standard PHP Library (SPL) Iterators and ArrayIterators. A malicious script author could possibly use either of these flaws to disclose certain portions of server memory. (CVE-2014-4670, CVE-2014-4698)

The CVE-2014-3597 issue was discovered by David Kutlek of the Red Hat BaseOS QE.

After installing the updated packages, the httpd daemon must be restarted for the update to take effect.
