Description

PHP 4 before 4.4.5, and PHP 5 before 5.2.1, when register_globals is enabled, allows context-dependent attackers to execute arbitrary code via deserialization of session data, which overwrites arbitrary global variables, as demonstrated by calling session_decode on a string beginning with "_SESSION|s:39:".

Solution(s)

  • php-upgrade-4_4_5
  • php-upgrade-5_2_1

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.
