Description Josh Bressers 2006-11-01 21:52:41 UTC
Stefan Esser told vendor-sec about a buffer overflow in PHP's
htmlentities/htmlspecialchars internal routines.  These flaws are triggered when
handling utf-8 data.  The danger in this flaw is that these functions are
usually passed user input.

The patch for this issue can be found here:

This issue also affects RHEL2.1 and RHEL3
