        AusCERT Security Bulletin Summary

Product:           php5

Operating System:  Debian GNU/Linux 8
Resolution:        Patch/Upgrade

Reference:         ESB-2019.3579

Original Bulletin: 

Comment: Reviewing 2015 Debian bug report 805222 it seems this is classified
         as "a generic error in PEAR instead of a bug in the php-apcu. Bug 
         handlers believe this bug should not affect users", but they noted 
         "it probably broke all PHP extensions, since it stops honoring 
         packagingroot after calling PEAR_Registry->setConfig()".

Package        : php5
Version        : 5.6.40+dfsg-0+deb8u6
Debian Bug     : 805222

An update has been made to php5, a server-side, HTML-embedded scripting
language.  Specficially, as reported in #805222, the ability to build
extensions in certain older versions of PHP within Debian has been
hindered by an upstream change which first appeared in PHP 5.6.15.  This
update applies a fix which restores the ability to build PHP extensions
for Debian 8 "jessie" so that a forthcoming PECL extension update can be
built and released.

For Debian 8 "Jessie", this problem has been fixed in version

We recommend that you upgrade your php5 packages.
