Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in PHP, the web scripting 
language. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies 
the following issues:

CVE-2011-1072

   It was discoverd that insecure handling of temporary files in the PEAR
   installer could lead to denial of service.

   Maksymilian Arciemowicz discovered that a NULL pointer dereference in
   the zend_strndup() function could lead to denial of service.

CVE-2012-0781

   Maksymilian Arciemowicz discovered that a NULL pointer dereference in
   the tidy_diagnose() function could lead to denial of service.

CVE-2012-0788

   It was discovered that missing checks in the handling of PDORow
   objects could lead to denial of service.

CVE-2012-0831

   It was discovered that the magic_quotes_gpc setting could be disabled
   remotely

This update also addresses PHP bugs, which are not treated as security issues
in Debian (see README.Debian.security), but which were fixed nonetheless:
CVE-2010-4697, CVE-2011-1092, CVE-2011-1148, CVE-2011-1464, CVE-2011-1467
CVE-2011-1468, CVE-2011-1469, CVE-2011-1470, CVE-2011-1657, CVE-2011-3182
CVE-2011-3267

For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
version 5.3.3-7+squeeze8.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 5.3.10-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your php5 packages.
