According to this new post on 4null4.de today, there are four new vulnerabilities in the most recent releases of PHP that have been found.
heise online, the popular and well-known German IT news site, conveys four new vulnerabilities in the PHP script language. PHP is often used for web applications such as WordPress and many bulletin board systems like phpBB or vBulletin. The issues can be found in PHP versions up to (and including) 4.4.2 and 5.1.2, and the current CVS snapshots for the upcoming 5.1.3 release will be first to fix the issues.
The errors are:
- A problem with copy() that circumvents the "Safe Mode" for users who are logged in at the system.
- A possible issue with tempname() that could ignore the "Safe Mode" setting also
- a third leak that could lead to a web server process crashing (recusive function calls)
- and an XSS attack issue with the standard phpinfo() page
