Description

Integer overflow in the phar_parse_tarfile function in tar.c in the phar extension in PHP before 5.3.14 and 5.4.x before 5.4.4 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted tar file that triggers a heap-based buffer overflow.

Solution(s)

  • php-upgrade-5_3_14
  • php-upgrade-5_4_4

References

  • php-upgrade-5_3_14
