Ubuntu has issued an update for php5. This fixes some vulnerabilities, which can be exploited by malicious users to bypass certain security restrictions, and by malicious people to cause a DoS (Denial of Service) or potentially to compromise a vulnerable system.


For more information:

USN-557-1 fixed a vulnerability in the GD library. PHP did not properly handle the return codes that were added in the security update. This can be exploited to cause PHP to crash via a specially crafted image file. This issue only applies to Ubuntu 6.06 LTS and 7.10.
