    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.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 5.4.3-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your php5 packages.
