USN-824-1: PHP vulnerability

24 August 2009

PHP vulnerability




It was discovered that PHP did not properly handle certain malformed
JPEG images when being parsed by the Exif module. A remote attacker could
exploit this flaw and cause the PHP server to crash, resulting in a denial
of service.

Update instructions

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package versions:

Ubuntu 9.04
Ubuntu 8.10
Ubuntu 8.04
Ubuntu 6.06

In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the
necessary changes.
