Here you can find a solution:

You can fix this by editing a single file: phpThumb/phpthumb.functions.php (around line 443). You just need to add a couple filtering commands to the SafeExec function to filter its input before it sends it to the command line. Right after the function declaration, add lines that filter the $command input. I haven't tested this against all possible valid phpThumb input arguments, but this does prevent a "contained" hack.


function SafeExec($command) {

// Strip off any commands after the first semi-colon
// and prepare the data to be sent to the command line.
// EVERETT @ www.fireproofsocks.com 9/26/2010
$command = preg_replace('/;.*$/','',$command); // <-- *NIX only
$command = escapeshellcmd($command);

This is a fairly old thread, but please be aware that there was an uptick just today in the amount of scan activity trying to exploit this vulnerability. If anyone is still running vulnerable versions of phpthumb, you need to upgrade immediately.
