Hi, in addition to the xslt arbitrary file creation) there are some more potential security vulnerabilities that appear
to have been fixed in 5.3.9. Can you confirm if these are not security issues? Also will you need CVE assignments for
the ones that are (I can help with that).
Sending to security () php net again and cc'ing oss-sec in case anyone on the list has ideas/comments.
From the ChangeLog:
Fixed bug #60150 (Integer overflow during the parsing of invalid exif
header). (Stas, flolechaud at gmail dot com) - security bug
There is an integer overflow in ext/exif/exif.c that can be used in order to
cause a denial of service or read arbitrary memory.
Fixed bug #55776 (PDORow to session bug). (Johannes)
Is a Apache crash. It gives a CGI/FastCGI Send/Don't Send window.
