Description Huzaifa S. Sidhpurwala 2012-06-25 05:52:46 EDT
A format string vulnerability in the phar extension in PHP 5.3 before 5.3.4 allow context-dependent attackers to obtain sensitive information (memory contents) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted phar:// URI that is not properly handled by the phar_stream_flush()

Comment 5 Tomas Hoger 2012-06-27 12:09:30 EDT
This issue was originally fixed with CVE-2010-2094 (bug #598537) in PHP 5.3.2 packages that were included in the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 in its initial release.  However, PHP was updated to version 5.3.3 in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.1 via RHBA-2011:0615:

In that update, the fix for this issue was inadvertently removed along with the fix for CVE-2010-2094, which was fixed upstream in 5.3.3.  However, CVE-2010-2950 issue was only fixed upstream in version 5.3.4.  Refer to bug #598537, comment #4 and bug #598537, comment #7 to 10 for more details.
