因为4.2.0和4.2.1中存在的一个安全漏洞,PHP小组于22日发布了4.3之前的一个补丁版4.2.2这个版本只修正了这一安全漏洞--并没有别的改进。这个漏洞允许任何人以web server的运行者身份执行任意代码。
下面是细节:PHP Security Advisory: Vulnerability in PHP versions 4.2.0 and 4.2.1
[ Version Française ]

Issued on: July 22, 2002
Software: PHP versions 4.2.0 and 4.2.1
Platforms: All

The PHP Group has learned of a serious security vulnerability in PHP versions 4.2.0 and 4.2.1. An intruder may be able to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the web server. This vulnerability may be exploited to compromise the web server and, under certain conditions, to gain privileged access.

PHP contains code for intelligently parsing the headers of HTTP POST requests. The code is used to differentiate between variables and files sent by the user agent in a "multipart/form-data" request. This parser has insufficient input checking, leading to the vulnerability.

The vulnerability is exploitable by anyone who can send HTTP POST requests to an affected web server. Both local and remote users, even from behind firewalls, may be able to gain privileged access.

Both local and remote users may exploit this vulnerability to compromise the web server and, under certain conditions, to gain privileged access. So far only the IA32 platform has been verified to be safe from the execution of arbitrary code. The vulnerability can still be used on IA32 to crash PHP and, in most cases, the web server.

The PHP Group has released a new PHP version, 4.2.2, which incorporates a fix for the vulnerability. All users of affected PHP versions are encouraged to upgrade to this latest version. The downloads web site at

has the new 4.2.2 source tarballs, Windows binaries and source patches from 4.2.0 and 4.2.1 available for download.

If the PHP applications on an affected web server do not rely on HTTP POST input from user agents, it is often possible to deny POST requests on the web server.

In the Apache web server, for example, this is possible with the following code included in the main configuration file or a top-level .htaccess file:

Order deny,allow
Deny from all

Note that an existing configuration and/or .htaccess file may have parameters contradicting the example given above.

The PHP Group would like to thank Stefan Esser of e-matters GmbH for discovering this vulnerability. e-matters GmbH has also released an independent advisory, describing the vulnerability in more detail.
