Description

PHP, when not configured with the "display_errors = Off" setting in php.ini, allows remote attackers to obtain the physical path for an include file via a trailing slash in a request to a directly accessible PHP program, which modifies the base path, causes the include directive to fail, and produces an error message that contains the path.

Solution(s)

  • php-upgrade-4_0_7
  • php-upgrade-4_2_0
