[Owasp-leaders] Use-after-free vulnerability information on the wiki

There is some traction by several security news sources [1][2]
reporting a major vulnerability found in Pornhub/PHP (RCE and full
access to members database).

The technical analysis[3] written by the authors includes several
references to OWASP material/wiki for details. One relates to the
"use-after-free" vulnerability. Unfortunately, the page[4] was deleted
just a few days before the analysis went online.

I am guessing there might be some list members who probably wrote a
description about this vulnerability, which could be rapidly
contributed/donated into the wiki? That would be great.
