PHP 5.6.8 Denial Of Service Overflow Obtain Information Vulnerability
31 Oct. 2016
sapi/fpm/fpm/fpm_log.c in PHP before 5.5.31, 5.6.x before 5.6.17, and 7.x before 7.0.2 misinterprets the semantics of the snprintf return value, which allows attackers to obtain sensitive information from process memory or cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read and buffer overflow) via a long string, as demonstrated by a long URI in a configuration with custom REQUEST_URI logging.
Multiple potential remote and local vulnerabilities impacting Perl and PHP have been addressed by HPE NonStop Servers OSS Script Languages. The vulnerabilities include Perl's opportunistic loading of optional modules which might allow local users to gain elevation of privilege via a Trojan horse library under the current working directory.
