The memory_limit functionality in PHP 4.x up to 4.3.7, and 5.x up to
5.0.0RC3, under certain conditions such as when register_globals is
enabled, allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code by
triggering a memory_limit abort during execution of the zend_hash_init
function and overwriting a HashTable destructor pointer before
the initialization of key data structures is complete.
