There exists a vulnerability in PHP v4.2.0 and v4.2.1 which allows a remote attacker to construct an invalid MIME POST request which has the potential to modify program memory. On x86 systems, this will result in a denial of service. On non-x86 system, this can result in the execution of arbitrary code.
