Description

It was discovered that PHP incorrectly handled the xml_parse_into_struct function. If a PHP application parsed untrusted XML, an attacker could use this flaw with a specially crafted XML document to cause PHP to crash, resulting in a denial of service, or to possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2013-4113)

It was discovered that PHP incorrectly handled the jdtojewish function. An attacker could use this flaw to cause PHP to crash, resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2013-4635).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
