Description Joe Orton 2007-06-01 08:35:51 EDT
Description of problem:
PHP 5.2.3 release:

Fixed an integer overflow inside chunk_split() (by Gerhard Wagner, CVE-2007-2872)
Comment 1 Mark J. Cox (Product Security) 2007-06-01 10:10:52 EDT
impact=moderate based on analysis of the vulnerability.  Note that to exploit
this the attacker would need to be able to supply an arbitrary argument as a 3rd
argument to chunk_split.  Most scripts that use chunk_script do not specify a
3rd argument or use a fixed argument.
Comment 2 Mark J. Cox (Product Security) 2007-09-03 11:15:17 EDT
note a more complete fix was included with PHP 5.2.4 release
