Description

PHP 4.2.0 and 4.2.1 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service and possibly execute arbitrary code via an HTTP POST request with certain arguments in a multipart/form-data form, which generates an error condition that is not properly handled and causes improper memory to be freed.

Solution(s)

  • php-upgrade-4_2_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.
