Not a security issue since built-in server should not be used in production, but somebody may want to look at it and fix it still.

Anatol, you have an idea? - This seems to be Windows-specific. 

In php_cli_server_dispatch() we see that the extension is not "php" (which is correct, as the file extension is empty) so it dispatches a static file.  In php_cli_server_begin_send_static() we do

1953    if (client->request.path_translated && strlen(client->request.path_translated) != client->request.path_translated_len) {
1954        /* can't handle paths that contain nul bytes */
1955        return php_cli_server_send_error_page(server, client, 400);
1956    }
1957
1958    fd = client->request.path_translated ? open(client->request.path_translated, O_RDONLY): -1;

Which succeeds and opens "foo.php" when "foo.php." is requested.

Johannes, oh yeah, you've spotted it very well. The win32 namespace will cut off the trailing dots and spaces. I'll prepare a patch for next RCs.

Thanks.

Hi,
 
There is an easy way to fix the "dot" security issue. 
 
You can just make a router.php to check the REQUEST_URI before the response: 
<?php
// router.php
$rcuri = explode("?",$_SERVER["REQUEST_URI"]);
if (substr($rcuri[0],-1) != ".") {
    return false;
} else { 
header("HTTP/1.0 404 Not Found");
?>
 
This will show you a blank 404 page if there is a dot in the end of URL (if there are any params i exclude them with explode...)
 
If you want to "fake" the default 404 page, you can just echo it: 
<?php
// router.php
$rcuri = explode("?",$_SERVER["REQUEST_URI"]);
if (substr($rcuri[0],-1) != ".") {
    return false;
} else { 
header("HTTP/1.0 404 Not Found");
echo '<!doctype html><html><head><title>404 Not Found</title><style>
body { background-color: #fcfcfc; color: #333333; margin: 0; padding:0; }
h1 { font-size: 1.5em; font-weight: normal; background-color: #9999cc; min-height:2em; line-height:2em; border-bottom: 1px inset black; margin: 0; }
h1, p { padding-left: 10px; }
code.url { background-color: #eeeeee; font-family:monospace; padding:0 2px;}
</style>
</head><body><h1>Not Found</h1><p>The requested resource <code class="url">'.$_SERVER["REQUEST_URI"].'</code> was not found on this server.</p></body></html>';
}
?>
 
You can put the router.php in the same dir with php.exe and run the server with:
php.exe -S 127.0.0.1:80 router.php
 
If you want to specify the document root, you must put -t param before -S param:
php.exe -t "C:\vbserver\www_uncompress" -S 192.168.123.100:80 router.php

There is something more that i didn't catch in my router.php

If server have a request like this: 
http://192.168.5.152/index.php./

or like this etc:
http://192.168.5.152/index.php..../

We can't catch the bug and client can show our source code.

So, we have to do some preg_replaces to catch all posible cases with one if.

in my router.php we have to replace this line:
if (substr($rcuri[0],-1) != ".") {

with this lines:
function str_ends_with($haystack, $needle)
{return substr_compare($haystack, $needle, -strlen($needle)) === 0;}
$rmdots = preg_replace('/\.{2,}/', '.',$rcuri[0]);
$rmdots = preg_replace('/\/{2,}/', '/',$rmdots);
$rmdots = preg_replace('/[\.\/]{2,}/', './',$rmdots);
if (!str_ends_with($rcuri[0],'.') && !str_ends_with($rmdots,'.php./')) {

Ok this is not the better way, we can make a very smart preg_match to do the same but, this code will do the job too.

So, my router.php is now:
<?php
// router.php
function str_ends_with($haystack, $needle)
{
  return substr_compare($haystack, $needle, -strlen($needle)) === 0;
}
$rcuri = explode("?",$_SERVER["REQUEST_URI"]);
$rmdots = preg_replace('/\.{2,}/', '.',$rcuri[0]);
$rmdots = preg_replace('/\/{2,}/', '/',$rmdots);
$rmdots = preg_replace('/[\.\/]{2,}/', './',$rmdots);
if (!str_ends_with($rcuri[0],'.') && !str_ends_with($rmdots,'.php./')) {
    return false;
} else { 
header("HTTP/1.0 404 Not Found");
echo '<!doctype html><html><head><title>404 Not Found</title><style>
body { background-color: #fcfcfc; color: #333333; margin: 0; padding:0; }
h1 { font-size: 1.5em; font-weight: normal; background-color: #9999cc; min-height:2em; line-height:2em; border-bottom: 1px inset black; margin: 0; }
h1, p { padding-left: 10px; }
code.url { background-color: #eeeeee; font-family:monospace; padding:0 2px;}
</style>
</head><body><h1>Not Found</h1><p>The requested resource <code class="url">'.$_SERVER["REQUEST_URI"].'</code> was not found on this server.</p></body></html>';
}
?>
