Description

PHP is an HTML-embedded scripting language commonly used with the ApacheHTTP Server.A buffer overflow flaw was found in the way PHP parsed deeply nested XMLdocuments. If a PHP application used the xml_parse_into_struct() functionto parse untrusted XML content, an attacker able to supplyspecially-crafted XML could use this flaw to crash the application or,possibly, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user runningthe PHP interpreter. (CVE-2013-4113)All php53 users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain abackported patch to resolve this issue. After installing the updatedpackages, the httpd daemon must be restarted for the update to take effect.
