Vulnerability CVE-2015-9253


Published: 2018-02-19

Description:
An issue was discovered in PHP 7.3.x before 7.3.0alpha3, 7.2.x before 7.2.8, and before 7.1.20. The php-fpm master process restarts a child process in an endless loop when using program execution functions (e.g., passthru, exec, shell_exec, or system) with a non-blocking STDIN stream, causing this master process to consume 100% of the CPU, and consume disk space with a large volume of error logs, as demonstrated by an attack by a customer of a shared-hosting facility.

Type:

CWE-400

(Uncontrolled Resource Consumption ('Resource Exhaustion'))

Vendor: PHP
Product: PHP 
Version: 7.2.2;
