Bug #41353 openssl_pkcs12_read() does not verify the type of the first arg
Submitted: 2007-05-10 13:23 UTC Modified: 2007-05-13 17:37 UTC
From: Assigned:
Status: Closed Package: OpenSSL related
PHP Version: 5CVS-2007-05-10 (CVS) OS: Linux
Private report: No CVE-ID: None
 [2007-05-10 13:23 UTC]
Function openssl_pkcs12_read() does not check the type of the first argument and uses it as a string in the call to BIO_write().
So if you pass a number as the first parameter, BIO_write() is called with a garbage params and segfaults.

Reproduce code:
$a = 2;
openssl_pkcs12_read(1, $a, 1);

Actual result:
(gdb) r -r '$a = 2; openssl_pkcs12_read(1, $a, 1);'
Starting program: /home/tony/php-src_5_2/sapi/cli/php -r '$a = 1; openssl_pkcs12_read(1, $a, 1);'
