Description

The compress.bzip2:// URL wrapper provided by the bz2 extension in PHP before 4.4.7, and 5.x before 5.2.2, does not implement safemode or open_basedir checks, which allows remote attackers to read bzip2 archives located outside of the intended directories.

Solution(s)

  • php-upgrade-4_4_7
  • php-upgrade-5_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.
