Description Josh Bressers 2011-08-26 16:33:09 UTC
PHP before 5.3.7 does not properly implement the error_log function,
which allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service
(application crash) via unspecified vectors.

Comment 3 Huzaifa S. Sidhpurwala 2011-09-16 06:34:07 UTC
Looking at the version of php and php53 shipped with rhel-6 and rhel-5, the following block of code which is vulnerable does not exist in:


4677     if (opt_err == 3 && opt) {
4678         if (strlen(opt) != opt_len) {
4679             RETURN_FALSE;


Not Vulnerable. This issue did not affect the version of php shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6. This issue did not affect the version of php53 shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
