Description Joe Orton 2007-05-17 10:48:37 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:".
