Description Vincent Danen 2010-11-12 22:10:38 UTC
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures assigned an identifier CVE-2009-5016 to
the following vulnerability:

Assigned: 20101112

Reference: MISC: http://www.blackhat.com/presentations/bh-usa-09/VELANAVA/BHUSA09-VelaNava-FavoriteXSS-SLIDES.pdf
Reference: CONFIRM: http://bugs.php.net/bug.php?id=49687

Integer overflow in the xml_utf8_decode function in ext/xml/xml.c in
PHP before 5.2.11 makes it easier for remote attackers to bypass
cross-site scripting (XSS) and SQL injection protection mechanisms via
a crafted string that uses overlong UTF-8 encoding, a different
vulnerability than CVE-2010-3870.

Comment 1 Kurt Seifried 2010-11-13 06:29:14 UTC
CVE duplicate?

Comment 2 Kurt Seifried 2010-11-13 07:32:02 UTC
Oops nevermind. xml_utf8_decode != utf8_decode
