CVE-2008-2108 (retired)

Priority
Description
The GENERATE_SEED macro in PHP 4.x before 4.4.8 and 5.x before 5.2.5, when
running on 64-bit systems, performs a multiplication that generates a
portion of zero bits during conversion due to insufficient precision, which
produces 24 bits of entropy and simplifies brute force attacks against
protection mechanisms that use the rand and mt_rand functions.
