Original release date:03/21/2007
The resource system in PHP 4.0.0 through 4.4.6 and 5.0.0 through 5.2.1 allows context-dependent attackers to execute arbitrary code by interrupting certain functions in the GD (ext/gd) extension and unspecified other extensions via a userspace error handler, which can be used to destroy and modify internal resources.
CVSS Severity (version 2.0):
CVSS Version 2 Metrics:
Access Vector: Network exploitable
Access Complexity: Medium
Authentication: Not required to exploit
Impact Type:Allows unauthorized disclosure of information; Allows unauthorized modification; Allows disruption of service
Official Statement from Red 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.
