USN105-1 : php4 vulnerabilities

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
php4 vulnerabilities

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

These remote packages are missing security patches :
- libapache2-mod-php4
- php4
- php4-cgi
- php4-curl
- php4-dev
- php4-domxml

Description :

Two Denial of Service vulnerabilities have been discovered in the
getimagesize() function. getimagesize() uses format specific internal
functions php_handle_iff() and php_handle_jpeg() which get stuck in
infinite loops when certain (invalid) size parameters are read from
the image. In web applications that permit users to upload arbitrary
image files, a remote attacker could render the server unavailable by
uploading specially crafted images.
