Description Adam Mariš 2016-05-04 09:11:17 UTC
It was found that grapheme_stripos reads from arbitrary memory when negative value is passed as an offset and the first parameter is an array element.

Comment 5 Tomas Hoger 2016-06-13 08:57:40 UTC
This is an out-of-bound read issue.  To trigger it, a negative attacker-supplied value must be passed as $offset to one of the affected functions (grapheme_strpos or grapheme_stripos).  Negative offset leads to buffer under-read (memory read before the start of the buffer).  How far the out-of-bounds read can reach is controlled by the length of the $haystack argument.  Interpreter crash or disclosure of the memory are possible impacts.

Note that neither of the affected functions is documented as allowing negative $offset.  Their regular counterparts - strpos and stripos functions - are explicitly documented as not allowing negative offsets.  As the use of untrusted values for $offset does not seem to be likely or commonly done, there's currently no plan to backport the fix to affected Red Hat products.

This issue is in the intl (Internationalization) extension.  In Red Hat products, this extension is packaged separately in php-intl sub-RPM.  Systems without that package installed can not be affected by this issue.
