    Package        : php5
    CVE ID         : CVE-2015-7803 CVE-2015-7804
    
    Two vulnerabilities were found in PHP, a general-purpose scripting
    language commonly used for web application development.
    
    CVE-2015-7803
    
        The phar extension could crash with a NULL pointer dereference
        when processing tar archives containing links referring to
        non-existing files.  This could lead to a denial of service.
    
    CVE-2015-7804
    
        The phar extension does not correctly process directory entries
        found in archive files with the name "/", leading to a denial of
        service and, potentially, information disclosure.
    
    The update for Debian stable (jessie) contains additional bug fixes
    from PHP upstream version 5.6.14, as described in the upstream
    changelog:
    
        https://php.net/ChangeLog-5.php#5.6.13
    
    Note to users of the the oldstable distribution (wheezy): PHP 5.4 has
    reached end-of-life on September 14th, 2015.  As a result, there will
    be no more new upstream releases.  The security support of PHP 5.4 in
    Debian oldstable (wheezy) will be best effort only, and you are
    strongly advised to upgrade to latest Debian stable release (jessie),
    which includes PHP 5.6.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed
    in version 5.4.45-0+deb7u2.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
    version 5.6.14+dfsg-0+deb8u1.
    
    For the testing distribution (stretch) and the unstable distribution
    (sid), these problems have been fixed in version 5.6.14+dfsg-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your php5 packages.
