Description :

Eric Romang discovered a local Denial of Service vulnerability in the
handling of the 'session.save_path' parameter in PHP's Apache 2.0
module. By setting this parameter to an invalid value in an .htaccess
file, a local user could crash the Apache server. (CVE-2005-3319)

A Denial of Service flaw was found in the EXIF module. By sending an
image with specially crafted EXIF data to a PHP program that
automatically evaluates them (e. g. a web gallery), a remote attacker
could cause an infinite recursion in the PHP interpreter, which caused
the web server to crash. (CVE-2005-3353)

Stefan Esser reported a Cross Site Scripting vulnerability in the
phpinfo() function. By tricking a user into retrieving a specially
crafted URL to a PHP page that exposes phpinfo(), a remote attacker
could inject arbitrary HTML or web script into the output page and
possibly steal private data like cookies or session identifiers.

Stefan Esser discovered a vulnerability of the parse_str() function
when it is calle
