Description Mark J. Cox (Product Security) 2006-11-02 08:21:40 EST
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #213543 +++

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.
