Description

php-wrapper.fcgi does not properly handle command-line arguments, which allows remote attackers to bypass a protection mechanism in PHP 5.3.12 and 5.4.2 and execute arbitrary code by leveraging improper interaction between the PHP sapi/cgi/cgi_main.c component and a query string beginning with a +- sequence.

Solution(s)

  • php-upgrade-5_3_13
  • php-upgrade-5_4_3
