HP-UX: CVE-2012-2311: Apache Web Server running PHP, Remote Execution of Arbitrary Code, Privilege Elevation, Denial of Service (DoS)

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

Description

sapi/cgi/cgi_main.c in PHP before 5.3.13 and 5.4.x before 5.4.3, when configured as a CGI script (aka php-cgi), does not properly handle query strings that contain a %3D sequence but no = (equals sign) character, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code by placing command-line options in the query string, related to lack of skipping a certain php_getopt for the 'd' case. NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2012-1823.
