Original release date: 02/20/2007
Last revised: 05/25/2011
Source: US-CERT/NIST

Overview

The zend_hash_init function in PHP 5 before 5.2.1 and PHP 4 before 4.4.5, when running on a 64-bit platform, allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop) by unserializing certain integer expressions, which only cause 32-bit arguments to be used after the check for a negative value, as demonstrated by an "a:2147483649:{" argument.

Description

Availability also affected by time out alarm for the script, which helps prevent infinite loops.
