Description

The php_next_marker function in image.c for PHP 4.2.2, 4.3.9, 4.3.10 and 5.0.3, as reachable by the getimagesize PHP function, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop) via a JPEG image with an invalid marker value, which causes a negative length value to be passed to php_stream_seek.

Solution(s)

  • php-upgrade-4_3_11
  • php-upgrade-5_0_4

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.
