Backports unserialize options introduced in PHP 7.0 to older PHP versions.
Backports unserialize options introduced in PHP 7.0 to older PHP versions. This was originally designed as a Proof of Concept for Symfony Issue #21090.
You can use this package in projects that rely on PHP versions older than
PHP 7.0. In case you are using PHP 7.0+ the original
unserialize() will be
From the documentation:
Do not pass untrusted user input to unserialize() regardless of the options value of allowed_classes. Unserialization can result in code being loaded and executed due to object instantiation and autoloading, and a malicious user may be able to exploit this. Use a safe, standard data interchange format such as JSON (via json_decode() and json_encode()) if you need to pass serialized data to the user.
- PHP 5.3+
You can install this package via composer:
composer require brumann/polyfill-unserialize "^1.0"
There is a mismatch in behavior when
$options is not
of the correct type (array or boolean). PHP 7.0 will not issue a warning that
an invalid type was provided. This library will trigger a warning, similar to
the one PHP 7.1+ will raise and then continue, assuming
false to make sure
no classes are deserialized by accident.
You can run the test suite using PHPUnit. It is intentionally not bundled as dev dependency to make sure this package has the lowest restrictions on the implementing system as possible.
Please read the PHPUnit Manual for information how to install it on your system.
You can run the test suite as follows:
phpunit -c phpunit.xml.dist tests/
This package is considered feature complete. As such I will likely not update it unless there are security issues.
