Description

The RFC1867 file upload feature in PHP 4.x up to 4.4.0 and 5.x up to 5.0.5, when register_globals is enabled, allows remote attackers to modify the GLOBALS array and bypass security protections of PHP applications via a multipart/form-data POST request with a "GLOBALS" fileupload field.

  • php-upgrade-4_4_1

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.
