OS X update for apache_mod_php (CVE-2014-9427)

Severity CVSS Published Added Modified
8 (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:P) January 01, 2015 April 04, 2017 April 04, 2017

Description

sapi/cgi/cgi_main.c in the CGI component in PHP through 5.4.36, 5.5.x through 5.5.20, and 5.6.x through 5.6.4, when mmap is used to read a .php file, does not properly consider the mapping's length during processing of an invalid file that begins with a # character and lacks a newline character, which causes an out-of-bounds read and might (1) allow remote attackers to obtain sensitive information from php-cgi process memory by leveraging the ability to upload a .php file or (2) trigger unexpected code execution if a valid PHP script is present in memory locations adjacent to the mapping.
