Description Mark J. Cox 2007-08-03 08:55:16 UTC
http://www.php-security.org/MOPB/PMOPB-46-2007.html

"The session_start function in ext/session in PHP 4.x up to 4.4.7 and 5.x up to
5.2.3 allows remote attackers to insert arbitrary attributes into the session
cookie via special characters in a cookie that is obtained from (1) PATH_INFO,
(2) the session_id function, and (3) the session_start function, which are not
encoded or filtered when the new session cookie is generated."

Better expressed as: "The session_start function allows a cross-site cookie
insertion attack if a user follows an untrusted carefully-crafted URL"

"Affected are PHP4 <= 4.4.7 and PHP5 <= 5.2.3"
