NVD Description

Note: Versions mentioned in the description apply to the upstream file package. See Remediation section below for Debian:10 relevant versions.

The cdf_count_chain function in cdf.c in file before 5.19, as used in the Fileinfo component in PHP before 5.4.30 and 5.5.x before 5.5.14, does not properly validate sector-count data, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a crafted CDF file.

Remediation

Upgrade Debian:10 file to version 1:5.19-1 or higher.
