Description Joe Orton 2007-05-15 15:30:09 UTC
Description of problem:
The php_binary serialization handler in the session extension in PHP before
4.4.5, and 5.x before 5.2.1, allows context-dependent attackers to obtain
sensitive information (memory contents) via a serialized variable entry with a
large length value, which triggers a buffer over-read.
