Description:
------------
I noticed now and then the following problem with the new 5.5.2 and 5.5.3 version, which makes the PHP stalling in a short script which uses openssl calls to print server certificates.


PHP Fatal error:  Allowed memory size of 209715200 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 736849521 bytes) in /srv/www-ssl/scripts/MySimpleCertificateViewer/index.php on line 70

line 70: $certArray = openssl_x509_parse( $cp );

It is currently unclear, why this stall happens, but I want to early report this problem to you developers.

The script is short and available here https://github.com/Wikinaut/MySimpleCertificateViewer .

again, just to make it clear: in most of the cases it works. Stalls only now and then. Webserver is Apache, and a restart solves the problem immediately, but this is not a solution.

I suppose, there's a bug in PHP or openssl function.

The function, openssl_x509_parse() works fine on most certificates.  I think it is getting tripped up on a certain certificate, perhaps the google cert with 100s of subjectAltNames.  Can you post the certificate which triggered the out of memory issue, it will help to research the issue if the behavior is reproducible.

Just save it in a file (f.ex. test.pem) and call this php code:

<?php
$ssl = openssl_x509_parse(file_get_contents('test.pem'));
print_r($ssl);
?>

Error in the Apache log file is:
[core:notice] [pid 16919] AH00052: child pid 16925 exit signal Segmentation fault (11)

No further debug information availavle, although "LogLevel debug"

I cannot reproduce this with current PHP-7.2.  Can anybody else
reproduce this with a still supported PHP version[1]?
