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 "*[1]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.
