Package : php5
Vulnerability : code injection
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CVE-2012-0830

Stefan Esser discovered that the implementation of the max_input_vars
configuration variable in a recent PHP security update was flawed such
that it allows remote attackers to crash PHP or potentially execute
code.

For the oldstable distribution (lenny), no fix is available at this time.

For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
version 5.3.3-7+squeeze7.

The testing distribution (wheezy) and unstable distribution (sid)
will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your php5 packages.
