CVE-2007-1700 Detail

Current Description

The session extension in PHP 4 before 4.4.5, and PHP 5 before 5.2.1, calculates the reference count for the session variables without considering the internal pointer from the session globals, which allows context-dependent attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted string in the session_register after unsetting HTTP_SESSION_VARS and _SESSION, which destroys the session data Hashtable.

Vendor Statements (disclaimer)

Official Statement fromRed Hat (04/16/2007)

The PHP interpreter does not offer a reliable "sandboxed" security layer (as found in, say, a JVM) in which untrusted scripts can be run; any script run by the PHP interpreter must be trusted with the privileges of the interpreter itself. We therefore do not classify this issue as security-sensitive since no trust boundary is crossed.
