Description Tomas Hoger 2008-08-20 05:48:51 EDT

the following vulnerability:

PHP 4.4.x before 4.4.9 and PHP 5.6 through 5.2.6, when used as a FastCGI module, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via a request with multiple dots preceding the extension, as demonstrated using foo..php.

Comment 5 Tomas Hoger 2009-03-25 05:07:23 EDT
This issue is unlikely to affect PHP installations running on Red Hat Enterprise Linux, as there's no FastCGI httpd module shipped.  Typical installations use PHP as an httpd module, and are not affected by this flaw.  Upcoming PHP security update will address this flaw.
