CVE-2007-1701 php session extension global variable clobber
Last modified: 2007-05-21 06:15:25 EDT
Description of problem:
PHP 4 before 4.4.5, and PHP 5 before 5.2.1, when register_globals is enabled,
allows context-dependent attackers to execute arbitrary code via deserialization
of session data, which overwrites arbitrary global variables, as demonstrated by
calling session_decode on a string beginning with "_SESSION|s:39:".
This issue was fixed under the name CVE-2007-0910 in errata published by Red
Hat; at time of writing the advisories have not been updated to reference the
new CVE name.
