File: ext/phar/phar.c
Bug Function: phar_entry_remove

In function phar_entry_remove, idata->phar is assigned to phar at line 419.
The idata->phar could be freed at line 430 by calling phar_entry_delref(idata)->phar_archive_delref(idata->phar)->phar_destroy_phar_data(phar).
Whereas the freed idata->phar is dereferenced via phar->donotflus at line 433,
which causes a use after free bug.

Test script:
419:	phar = idata->phar;

	if (idata->internal_file->fp_refcount < 2) {
		if (idata->fp && idata->fp != idata->phar->fp && idata->fp != idata->phar->ufp && idata->fp != idata->internal_file->fp) {
		zend_hash_str_del(&idata->phar->manifest, idata->internal_file->filename, idata->internal_file->filename_len);
	} else {
		idata->internal_file->is_deleted = 1;
430:		phar_entry_delref(idata); // idata->phar freed here !

433:	if (!phar->donotflush) {  // use after free here!

Hi, maintainers.

Sorry to distrub you. Is the bug is a truth one?
Thanks for your time.

I think the scenario you're describing is never supposed to
happen, due to the refcount check on line 421.  However, that is
about phar_archive_data->internal_file->fp_refcount and not
phar_archive_data->refcount, so I'm not sure.

Thank you for this bug report. To properly diagnose the problem, we
need a short but complete example script to be able to reproduce
this bug ourselves.

A proper reproducing script starts with <?php and ends with ?>,
is max. 10-20 lines long and does not require any external
resources such as databases, etc. If the script requires a
database to demonstrate the issue, please make sure it creates
all necessary tables, stored procedures etc.

Please avoid embedding huge scripts into the report.
