[ PHP 5.3.8 Multiple vulnerabilities ]

CVE:
CVE-2011-4153 (zend_strndup)

[--- 1. Multiple NULL Pointer Dereference with zend_strndup()
[CVE-2011-4153] ---]
As we can see in zend_strndup()

- -zend_alloca.c---
ZEND_API char *zend_strndup(const char *s, uint length)
{
	char *p;

	p = (char *) malloc(length+1);
	if (UNEXPECTED(p == NULL)) {
		return p; <=== RETURN NULL
	}
	if (length) {
		memcpy(p, s, length);
	}
	p[length] = 0;
	return p;
}
- -zend_alloca.c---

zend_strndup() may return NULL

in php code, many calls to zend_strndup() dosen't checks returned
values. In result, places like:

- -zend_builtin_functions.c---
ZEND_FUNCTION(define)
{
	char *name;
	int name_len;
	zval *val;
	zval *val_free = NULL;
	zend_bool non_cs = 0;
	int case_sensitive = CONST_CS;
	zend_constant c;

	if (zend_parse_parameters(ZEND_NUM_ARGS() TSRMLS_CC, "sz|b", &name,
&name_len, &val, &non_cs) == FAILURE) {
		return;
	}
...
	c.flags = case_sensitive; /* non persistent */
	c.name = zend_strndup(name, name_len); <======== MAY RETURN NULL
	c.name_len = name_len+1;
	c.module_number = PHP_USER_CONSTANT;
	if (zend_register_constant(&c TSRMLS_CC) == SUCCESS) {
		RETURN_TRUE;
	} else {
		RETURN_FALSE;
	}
}
- -zend_builtin_functions.c---

- -PoC code---

[--- 2. Tidy::diagnose() NULL pointer dereference ---]
Class tidy, may provide to null pointer dereference using tidy lib.

1287 	static PHP_FUNCTION(tidy_diagnose)
1288 	{
1289 	TIDY_FETCH_OBJECT;
1290 	
1291 	if (tidyRunDiagnostics(obj->ptdoc->doc) >= 0) {
1292 	tidy_doc_update_properties(obj TSRMLS_CC);
1293 	RETURN_TRUE;
1294 	}
1295 	
1296 	RETURN_FALSE;
1297 	}

- -PoC---
(gdb) r -r '$nx=new Tidy("*");$nx->diagnose();'

I do not consider this vulnerability as a having security impact other
as DoS.
