CVE-2014-9653

Priority
Description
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.
Notes
 tyhicks> readelf.c not used in php5
 tyhicks> readelf.c does not use pread() in Precise or Lucid but it looks like
  short read()'s are still a problem
