This vulnerability has been modified since it was last analyzed by the NVD. It is awaiting reanalysis which may result in further changes to the information provided.
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.

Access Vector (AV):
Access Complexity (AC):
Provides unauthorized accessAllows unauthorized disclosure of informationAllows disruption of service
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.
