Description

php_variables.c in PHP before 5.0.2 allows remote attackers to read sensitive memory contents via (1) GET, (2) POST, or (3) COOKIE GPC variables that end in an open bracket character, which causes PHP to calculate an incorrect string length.

Solution(s)

  • php-upgrade-4_3_9
  • php-upgrade-5_0_2

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
