Package        : php5
CVE ID         : CVE-2014-0185 CVE-2014-0237 CVE-2014-0238 CVE-2014-2270

Several vulnerabilities were found in PHP, a general-purpose scripting
language commonly used for web application development:

CVE-2014-0185

    The default PHP FPM socket permission has been changed from 0666
    to 0660 to mitigate a security vulnerability (CVE-2014-0185) in PHP
    FPM that allowed any local user to run a PHP code under the active
    user of FPM process via crafted FastCGI client.

    The default Debian setup now correctly sets the listen.owner and
    listen.group to www-data:www-data in default php-fpm.conf.  If you
    have more FPM instances or a webserver not running under www-data
    user you need to adjust the configuration of FPM pools in
    /etc/php5/fpm/pool.d/ so the accessing process has rights to
    access the socket.

CVE-2014-0237 / CVE-2014-0238:

    Denial of service in the CDF parser of the fileinfo module.

CVE-2014-2270

    Denial of service in the fileinfo module.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
version 5.4.4-14+deb7u10.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your php5 packages.
