Subject: [CVE Request] Multiple PHP issues

1) Can we assign a CVE to PHP "Memory Read via gdImageRotateInterpolated
Array Index Out of Bounds":

Bug report: https://bugs.php.net/bug.php?id=70976
It is possible to read (almost) arbitrary memory.


2) Also CVE  request for PHP "Heap BufferOver Flow in escapeshell
functions":

Bug report: https://bugs.php.net/bug.php?d=71270
Patch:
https://github.com/php/php-src/commit/2871c70efaaaa0f102557a17c727fd4d5204dd4b

=====Copy and Paste of Original Bug Report ======

- There exist a heap-based buffer over flow that allows one to write a user
tainted data pass an allocated buffer. This vulnerability lies in the
following functions:

escapeshellarg
escapeshellcmd

- On a default php installation, the memory limit is set to 128MB and this
vulnerability is not triggerable. My analysis shows that this is
triggerable when memory limit is roughly > 1024mb. A quick search on github
shows that it's not uncommon to see code like "ini_set('memory_limit', -1);"


-I've created a POC that triggers the buffer over write with
0x414141414141.....

- A string of 1024mb is created and passed into escapeshellarg. "l"
contains the length of this string:

Breakpoint 2, php_escape_shell_arg (str=0x7fffad469028 'A' <repeats 200
times>...) at /home/elaw/php-7.0.0/ext/standard/exec.c:343
343             int x, y = 0, l = (int)strlen(str);

gdb-peda$ print l
$43 = 0x40000000            // 1024mb



-This length "l" is then passed into zend_string_alloc as "4 * l + 2" which
results in an integer overflow:

Temporary breakpoint 3, php_escape_shell_arg (str=0x7fffad000018 'A'
<repeats 200 times>...) at /home/elaw/php-7.0.1/ext/standard/exec.c:348
348             cmd = zend_string_alloc(4 * l + 2, 0); /* worst case */


gdb-peda$ print 4* l + 2
$44 = 0x2   //Overflow

- Stepping into zend_string_alloc to verify the integer overflow. Notice
len=0x2:
zend_string_alloc (persistent=0x0, len=0x2) at
/home/elaw/php-7.0.0/Zend/zend_string.h:121
121             zend_string *ret = (zend_string
*)pemalloc(ZEND_MM_ALIGNED_SIZE(_ZSTR_STRUCT_SIZE(len)), persistent);

- Lets confirm the overflow again in the allocated (zend_string *) cmd.
Notice cmd.len=0x2:
gdb-peda$ p *cmd
$52 = {
  gc = {
    refcount = 0x1,
    u = {
      v = {
        type = 0x6,
        flags = 0x0,
        gc_info = 0x0
      },
      type_info = 0x6
    }
  },
  h = 0x0,
  len = 0x2,
  val = "1"
}



- The loops then writes pass the allocated buffer in

258 for (x = 0, y = 0; x < l; x++) {
....
321       ZSTR_VAL(cmd)[y++] = str[x];



- Verifying the buffer overflow in
gdb-peda$ p (zend_string *)cmd.len
$9 = (zend_string *) 0x2
gdb-peda$ x/100b (zend_string *)cmd.val

- The vulnerability for php_escape_shell_cmd is identical.
