PECL Alternative PHP Cache (PECL APC) is a free, open, and robust
framework for caching and optimizing PHP intermediate code.
Daniel Papasian discovered a stack-based buffer overflow in the
apc_search_paths() function in the file apc.c when processing long
<impact type="high">
A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary
code in PHP applications that pass user-controlled input to the
include() function.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All PECL APC users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=dev-php5/pecl-apc-3.0.16-r1&quot;</code>
