Description

PHP 4.x and 5.x before 5.2.1, when running on multi-threaded systems, does not ensure thread safety for libc crypt function calls using protection schemes such as a mutex, which creates race conditions that allow remote attackers to overwrite internal program memory and gain system access.

Solution(s)

  • 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.
