Description Adam Mariš 2017-07-17 10:19:25 EDT
In PHP before 5.6.30 and 7.x before 7.0.15, the PHAR archive handler
could be used by attackers supplying malicious archive files to crash
the PHP interpreter or potentially disclose information due to a buffer
over-read in the phar_parse_pharfile function in ext/phar/phar.c.

Comment 1 Raphael Sanchez Prudencio 2017-08-30 15:19:09 EDT
For some reason, example_hostile.phar provided at php bug report does not trigger this vulnerability, but CVE-2016-10159.phar does. This vulnerability is exactly the same problem as in CVE-2016-10159, it was reported again because the fix was not enough and it was still vulnerable.
Comment 2 Remi Collet 2017-08-31 00:52:50 EDT
About security issues in .phar file

.phar is an archive format designed to distribution application (code, mostly as .war for java)

The format also includes metadata which are stored as serialized strings (so which are affected by all serialized issues, including class leak and wakeup)

In the future, the PHP security team will not manage such issue as security

Serious applications will never allow upload of such file (for ex, I checked Wordpress and GLPI)
