Description

The SoapClient __call method in ext/soap/soap.c in PHP before 5.4.45, 5.5.x before 5.5.29, and 5.6.x before 5.6.13 does not properly manage headers, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via crafted serialized data that triggers a "type confusion" in the serialize_function_call function.

Solution(s)

  • php-upgrade-5_4_45
  • php-upgrade-5_5_29
  • php-upgrade-5_6_13

References

  • php-upgrade-5_4_45
