CVE-2011-1657

New! CVE Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for CVEs has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. CVEs that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Description

The (1) ZipArchive::addGlob and (2) ZipArchive::addPattern functions in ext/zip/php_zip.c in PHP 5.3.6 allow context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via certain flags arguments, as demonstrated by (a) GLOB_ALTDIRFUNC and (b) GLOB_APPEND.
