    It has been discovered, that a vulnerability in php5, a server-side,
    HTML-embedded scripting language, could lead to exhausted disk space on
    the server. When using overly long filenames or field names, a memory
    limit could be hit which results in stopping the upload but not cleaning
    up behind.
    
    Further the embedded version of "file" is vulnerable to CVE-2019-18218.
    As it can not be exploited the same in php5 as in file, this issue is not
    handled as an own CVE but just as a bug, that has been fixed here
    (restrict the number of CDF_VECTOR elements to prevent a heap-based
    buffer overflow (4-byte out-of-bounds write)).
    
    
    For Debian 8 "Jessie", this problem has been fixed in version
    5.6.40+dfsg-0+deb8u12.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your php5 packages.
