    php-pear in php5 contains CWE-502 (Deserialization of Untrusted Data) and CWE-915 (Improperly Controlled Modification of Dynamically-Determined Object Attributes) vulnerabilities in its
    
    Package        : php5
    Version        : 5.6.39+dfsg-0+deb8u2
    CVE ID         : CVE-2018-1000888
    
    
    php-pear in php5 contains CWE-502 (Deserialization of Untrusted Data)
    and CWE-915 (Improperly Controlled Modification of
    Dynamically-Determined Object Attributes) vulnerabilities in its
    Archive_Tar class. When extract is called without a specific prefix
    path, can trigger unserialization by crafting a tar file with
    `phar://[path_to_malicious_phar_file]` as path. Object injection can
    be used to trigger destruct in the loaded PHP classes, all with
    possible remote code execution that can result in files being deleted
    or possibly modified.
    
    For Debian 8 "Jessie", this problem has been fixed in version
    5.6.39+dfsg-0+deb8u2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your php5 packages.
