PHP is an HTML-embedded scripting language commonly used with the Apache HTTP Server.

Security Fixes

CVE-2011-4885
It was found that the hashing routine used by PHP arrays was susceptible to predictable hash collisions. If an HTTP POST request to a PHP application contained many parameters whose names map to the same hash value, a large amount of CPU time would be consumed. This flaw has been mitigated by adding a new configuration directive, max_input_vars, that limits the maximum number of parameters processed per request. By default, max_input_vars is set to 1000.
CVE-2011-4566
An integer overflow flaw was found in the PHP exif extension. On 32-bit systems, a specially-crafted image file could cause the PHP interpreter to crash or disclose portions of its memory when a PHP script tries to extract Exchangeable image file format (Exif) metadata from the image file.
Red Hat would like to thank oCERT for reporting CVE-2011-4885. oCERT acknowledges Julian Wälde and Alexander Klink as the original reporters of CVE-2011-4885.
All php53 and php users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to resolve these issues. After installing the updated packages, the httpd daemon must be restarted for the update to take effect.

Security Fix

CVE-2012-0830
It was discovered that the fix for CVE-2011-4885 (released via RHSA-2012:0071, RHSA-2012:0033, and RHSA-2012:0019 for php packages in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4, 5, and 6 respectively) introduced an uninitialized memory use flaw. A remote attacker could send a specially-crafted HTTP request to cause the PHP interpreter to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code.

Security Fix

CVE-2012-1823
A flaw was found in the way the php-cgi executable processed command line arguments when running in CGI mode. A remote attacker could send a specially-crafted request to a PHP script that would result in the query string being parsed by php-cgi as command line options and arguments. This could lead to the disclosure of the script's source code or arbitrary code execution with the privileges of the PHP interpreter.
Red Hat is aware that a public exploit for this issue is available that allows remote code execution in affected PHP CGI configurations. This flaw does not affect the default configuration in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6 using the PHP module for Apache httpd to handle PHP scripts.

Security Fix

CVE-2013-4113
A buffer overflow flaw was found in the way PHP parsed deeply nested XML documents. If a PHP application used the xml_parse_into_struct() function to parse untrusted XML content, an attacker able to supply specially-crafted XML could use this flaw to crash the application or, possibly, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the PHP interpreter.
