Severity CVSS Published Added Modified
8 (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:P) March 30, 2015 November 24, 2015 July 04, 2017

Description

readelf.c in file before 5.22, as used in the Fileinfo component in PHP before 5.4.37, 5.5.x before 5.5.21, and 5.6.x before 5.6.5, does not consider that pread calls sometimes read only a subset of the available data, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (uninitialized memory access) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted ELF file.
