Description Jan Lieskovsky 2012-11-26 14:59:07 UTC
An information disclosure flaw was found in the way Symfony, a open-source PHP web framework, sanitized certain HTTP POST request values. A remote attacker could use this flaw to obtain (unauthorized) read access to arbitrary system files, readable with the privileges of the web server process.
