HP-UX: CVE-2012-1172: Apache Web Server running PHP, Remote Execution of Arbitrary Code, Privilege Elevation, Denial of Service (DoS)

Severity CVSS Published Added Modified
6 (AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:N/I:P/A:P) May 23, 2012 August 11, 2017 January 19, 2018

Description

The file-upload implementation in rfc1867.c in PHP before 5.4.0 does not properly handle invalid [ (open square bracket) characters in name values, which makes it easier for remote attackers to cause a denial of service (malformed $_FILES indexes) or conduct directory traversal attacks during multi-file uploads by leveraging a script that lacks its own filename restrictions.
