    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.
