    Package : php5
    Vulnerability : interpretation conflict
    Problem type : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID : CVE-2013-4248
    Debian Bug : 719765


    It was discovered that PHP, a general-purpose scripting language
    commonly used for web application development, did not properly
    process embedded NUL characters in the subjectAltName extension of
    X.509 certificates. Depending on the application and with
    insufficient CA-level checks, this could be abused for impersonating
    other users.


    For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 5.3.3-7+squeeze17.


    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 5.4.4-14+deb7u4.


    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 5.5.3+dfsg-1.


    We recommend that you upgrade your php5 packages.
