Description

ext/mysqlnd/mysqlnd.c in PHP before 5.4.43, 5.5.x before 5.5.27, and 5.6.x before 5.6.11 uses a client SSL option to mean that SSL is optional, which allows man-in-the-middle attackers to spoof servers via a cleartext-downgrade attack, a related issue to CVE-2015-3152.

Solution(s)

  • php-upgrade-5_4_43
  • php-upgrade-5_5_27
  • php-upgrade-5_6_11
