    Several issues have been discovered in PHP, a widely-used open source
    general-purpose scripting language.
    
    CVE-2016-10158
    
        Loading a TIFF or JPEG malicious file can lead to a Denial-of-Service
        attack when the EXIF header is being parsed.
    
    CVE-2016-10159
    
        Loading a malicious phar archive can cause an extensive memory
        allocation, leading to a Denial-of-Service attack on 32 bit
        computers.
    
    CVE-2016-10160
    
        An attacker might remotely execute arbitrary code using a malicious
        phar archive. This is the consequence of an off-by-one memory
        corruption.
    
    CVE-2016-10161
    
        An attacker with control of the unserialize() function argument can
        cause an out-of-bounce read. This could lead to a Denial-of-Service
        attack or a remote code execution.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
    version 5.6.30+dfsg-0+deb8u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your php5 packages.
