Security Based Updates

PHP Security Releases 8.3.8, 8.2.20, and 8.1.29
- PHP 8.3.8
- PHP 8.2.20
- PHP 8.1.29

These SECURITY Releases Fix:
- Argument Injection in PHP-CGI
- Bypass in filter_var FILTER_VALIDATE_URL
- proc_open workaround Windows with escaping arguments for bat/cmd files
- openssl_private_decrypt vulnerability to the Marvin attack

Zend has released the same patches for the ZendPHP 8.1, 8.2, and 8.3 distributions, with LTS patches coming later this week.

The Changelog Link includes further details:
- Fixed bug GHSA-3qgc-jrrr-25jv (Bypass of CVE-2012-1823, Argument Injection in PHP-CGI). (CVE-2024-4577)
 - Fixed bug GHSA-w8qr-v226-r27w (Filter bypass in filter_var FILTER_VALIDATE_URL). (CVE-2024-5458)
- Fixed bug GHSA-9fcc-425m-g385 (Bypass of CVE-2024-1874). (CVE-2024-5585)
- The openssl_private_decrypt function in PHP, when using PKCS1 padding (OPENSSL_PKCS1_PADDING, which is the default), is vulnerable to the Marvin Attack unless it is used with an OpenSSL version that includes the changes from this pull request: (rsa_pkcs1_implicit_rejection). These changes are part of OpenSSL 3.2 and have also been backported to stable versions of various Linux distributions, as well as to the PHP builds provided for Windows since the previous release. All distributors and builders should ensure that this version is used to prevent PHP from being vulnerable.
