SUSE Linux Security Vulnerability: CVE-2012-1172

Severity CVSS Published Added Modified
6 (AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:N/I:P/A:P) May 23, 2012 February 17, 2015 July 04, 2017

Description

The file-upload implementation in rfc1867.c in PHP before 5.4.0 does not properly handle invalid [ (open square bracket) characters in name values, which makes it easier for remote attackers to cause a denial of service (malformed $_FILES indexes) or conduct directory traversal attacks during multi-file uploads by leveraging a script that lacks its own filename restrictions.
