PHP 5.5.36 Denial Of Service Overflow Vulnerability
2 Nov. 2016
Integer overflow in the php_html_entities function in ext/standard/html.c in PHP before 5.5.36 and 5.6.x before 5.6.22 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly have other impact by triggering a large output string from the htmlspecialchars function.
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.
