Description Joe Orton 2007-05-17 14:27:13 UTC
Description of problem:
Buffer overflow in the php_stream_filter_create function in PHP 5 before 5.2.1
allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a
php://filter/ URL that has a name ending in the '.' character.

Comment 1 Joe Orton 2007-05-17 14:27:53 UTC
The PHP interpreter does not offer a reliable "sandboxed" security layer (as
found in, say, a JVM) in which untrusted scripts can be run; any script run by
the PHP interpreter must be trusted with the privileges of the interpreter itself.

This bug described in CVE-2007-1824 can only be triggered by a script author;
since no trust boundary is crossed, this issue is not treated as security-sensitive.
