Description Vincent Danen 2013-08-09 15:00:25 EDT
As noted from [1]:

CVE-2013-4751: Validation metadata serialization and loss of information:

Affected versions:

All 2.0.X, 2.1.X, 2.2.X, and 2.3.X versions of the Validator component are affected by this issue.


When using the Validator component, if Symfony\\Component\\Validator\\Mapping\\Cache\\ApcCache is enabled (or any other cache implementing Symfony\\Component\\Validator\\Mapping\\Cache\\CacheInterface), some information is lost during serialization (the collectionCascaded and the collectionCascadedDeeply fields).

As a consequence, arrays or traversable objects stored in fields using the @Valid constraint are not traversed by the validator as soon as the validator configuration is loaded from the cache.

A patch is also available [2].
