PHP before 5.2.3 allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial
of service (application crash) via (1) a long string in the pattern
parameter to the glob function; or (2) a long string in the string
parameter to the fnmatch function, accompanied by a pattern parameter
value with undefined characteristics, as demonstrated by a "*e"
value. NOTE: this might not be a vulnerability in most web server
environments that support multiple threads, unless these issues can be
demonstrated for code execution.
Note:References are provided for the convenience of the reader to help distinguish between vulnerabilities. The list is not intended to be complete.
