[SECURITY] [DLA 1608-1] php5 security update

Package        : php5
Version        : 5.6.39+dfsg-0+deb8u1
CVE ID         : CVE-2018-19518 CVE-2018-19935

Vulnerabilities have been discovered in php5, a server-side,
HTML-embedded scripting language.  Note that this update includes a
change to the default behavior for IMAP connections.  See below for


    An argument injection vulnerability in imap_open() may allow a
    remote attacker to execute arbitrary OS commands on the IMAP server.

    The fix for the CVE-2018-19518 vulnerability included this
    additional note from the upstream developers:

    Starting with 5.6.38, rsh/ssh logins are disabled by default. Use
    imap.enable_insecure_rsh if you want to enable them. Note that the
    IMAP library does not filter mailbox names before passing them to
    rsh/ssh command, thus passing untrusted data to this function with
    rsh/ssh enabled is insecure.


    A NULL pointer dereference leads to an application crash and a
    denial of service via an empty string in the message argument to the
    imap_mail function of ext/imap/php_imap.c.

For Debian 8 "Jessie", these problems have been fixed in version

We recommend that you upgrade your php5 packages.
