Subject: Re: CVE request: PHP xmlrpc date_from_ISO8601() buffer overflow (in php < 5.2.7)

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

> While looking at the recent PHP CVE-2014-3668, a worse problem was
> spotted in the same code that affected older PHP versions.  The
> date_from_ISO8601() function optionally copied input to a fixed size
> local buffer without performing any bounds checks:

> http://git.php.net/?p=php-src.git;a=blob;f=ext/xmlrpc/libxmlrpc/xmlrpc.c;h=d82f270#l168

> The fix was included in PHP 5.2.7:

>   Fixed bugs #45226, #18916 (xmlrpc_set_type() segfaults and wrong behavior
>   with valid ISO8601 date string). (Jeff Lawsons)
> 
> It wasn't flagged as security fix, which seems incorrect to me.  This
> overflow can be triggered by a malicious XML passed to xmlrpc_decode*
