    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.
