Details

Summary:
It has been reported [0] that php 5.6.2-2 is vulnerable to out-of-bounds read resulting in denial of service. This issue is tracked as CVE-2014-3710 [1].

Description:
An out-of-bounds read flaw was found in the way the file information (fileinfo) extension parsed executable and linkable format (ELF) files. A remote attacker could use this flaw to crash a PHP application using fileinfo via a specially crafted ELF file.

Mitigation:
The problem has been tracked [2] and fixed upstream [3] but no release is available yet.
We recommend to backport the patch until a release is available.

The attached patch does apply fine with:
# patch -p1 -i "${srcdir}/CVE-2014-3710.patch"
