    Synopsis:          Critical: php security update
    Advisory ID:       RHSA-2013:1063-01
    Product:           Red Hat Enterprise Linux
    Advisory URL:      https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2013-1063.html
    Issue date:        2013-07-15
    CVE Names:         CVE-2013-4113 
    =====================================================================
    
    1. Summary:
    
    Updated php packages that fix one security issue are now available for
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 and 4 Extended Life Cycle Support.
    
    The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having critical
    security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score,
    which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in
    the References section.
    
    2. Relevant releases/architectures:
    
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS (v. 3 ELS) - i386
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS (v. 4 ELS) - i386, ia64, x86_64
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES (v. 3 ELS) - i386
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES (v. 4 ELS) - i386, x86_64
    
    3. Description:
    
    PHP is an HTML-embedded scripting language commonly used with the Apache
    HTTP Server.
    
    A buffer overflow flaw was found in the way PHP parsed deeply nested XML
    documents. If a PHP application used the xml_parse_into_struct() function
    to parse untrusted XML content, an attacker able to supply
    specially-crafted XML could use this flaw to crash the application or,
    possibly, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running
    the PHP interpreter. (CVE-2013-4113)
    
    All php users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a
    backported patch to resolve this issue. After installing the updated
    packages, the httpd daemon must be restarted for the update to take effect.
    
    4. Solution:
    
    Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
    relevant to your system have been applied.
    
    This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
    use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
    https://access.redhat.com/site/articles/11258
    
    5. Bugs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):
