CVE-2007-1285 PHP Variable Destructor Deep Recursion Stack Overflow
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:42 EST
Description of problem:
MOPB-03-2007 describes how, on automatic deallocation of an input variable
containing a deeply-nested-array, the PHP uses recursion which may overflow the
process stack and crash.
The impact of this issue is to allow remote attackers to cause
premature termination of the process running the PHP interpreter; in
most multi-process web servers such processes are immediately replaced
at a minor cost to performance.
