Updated php packages fix security vulnerability

Publication date: 27 Feb 2023
Type: security
Affected Mageia releases : 8
CVE: CVE-2023-0567 , CVE-2023-0568 , CVE-2023-0662


The password_verify() function may accept some invalid Blowfish hashes as
valid. If such invalid hash ever ends up in the password database, it may
lead to an application allowing any password for this entry as valid.
The core path resolution function allocates a buffer one byte too small.
When resolving paths with lengths close to system MAXPATHLEN setting, this
may lead to the byte after the allocated buffer being overwritten with NUL
value, which might lead to unauthorized data access or modification.
Excessive number of parts in HTTP form upload can cause high resource
consumption and excessive number of log entries. This can cause denial of
service on the affected server by exhausting CPU resources or disk space.
