- Security database references:
- In the Debian bugtracking system: Bug 702221.

- More information:
Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in PHP, the web scripting language. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following issues:
If a PHP application accepted untrusted SOAP object input remotely from clients, an attacker could read system files readable for the webserver.
The soap.wsdl_cache_dir function did not take PHP open_basedir restrictions into account. Note that Debian advises against relying on open_basedir restrictions for security.
For the stable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in version 5.3.3-7+squeeze15.
For the testing distribution (wheezy), these problems will be fixed soon.
For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in version 5.4.4-14.
We recommend that you upgrade your php5 packages.
