Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Update for php RHSA-2013:1049-01
Summary:The remote host is missing an update for the 'php'; package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.
Description:Summary:
The remote host is missing an update for the 'php'
package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.

Vulnerability Insight:
PHP is an HTML-embedded scripting language commonly used with the Apache
HTTP Server.

A buffer overflow flaw was found in the way PHP parsed deeply nested XML
documents. If a PHP application used the xml_parse_into_struct() function
to parse untrusted XML content, an attacker able to supply
specially-crafted XML could use this flaw to crash the application or,
possibly, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running
the PHP interpreter. (CVE-2013-4113)

All php users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a
backported patch to resolve this issue. After installing the updated
packages, the httpd daemon must be restarted for the update to take effect.

Affected Software/OS:
php on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 6),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6)

Solution:
Please Install the Updated Packages.
