De Eindbazen discovered that PHP, when run with mod_cgi, will interpret a query string as command line parameters, allowing to execute arbitrary code.
Additionally, this update fixes insufficient validation of upload name which lead to corrupted $_FILES indices.
For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in version 5.3.3-7+squeeze9.
The testing distribution (wheezy) will be fixed soon.
