Description

The Phar extension in PHP before 5.5.34, 5.6.x before 5.6.20, and 7.x before 7.0.5 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted filename, as demonstrated by mishandling of \0 characters by the phar_analyze_path function in ext/phar/phar.c.

  • php-upgrade-5_5_34
  • php-upgrade-5_6_20
  • php-upgrade-7_0_5
