PHP Vulnerability: CVE-2012-2336

Severity CVSS Published Added Modified
5 (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:N/I:N/A:P) May 11, 2012 October 01, 2012 February 13, 2015

Description

sapi/cgi/cgi_main.c in PHP before 5.3.13 and 5.4.x before 5.4.3, when configured as a CGI script (aka php-cgi), does not properly handle query strings that lack an = (equals sign) character, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (resource consumption) by placing command-line options in the query string, related to lack of skipping a certain php_getopt for the 'T' case. NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2012-1823.
