NVD Description

Note: Versions mentioned in the description apply to the upstream file package. See Remediation section below for Debian:9 relevant versions.

readelf.c in file before 5.22, as used in the Fileinfo component in PHP before 5.4.37, 5.5.x before 5.5.21, and 5.6.x before 5.6.5, does not consider that pread calls sometimes read only a subset of the available data, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (uninitialized memory access) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted ELF file.

Remediation

Upgrade Debian:9 file to version 1:5.22+15-1 or higher.
