    Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in PHP, the web scripting
    language. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies
    the following issues:
    
    CVE-2013-1635
    
        If a PHP application accepted untrusted SOAP object input remotely
        from clients, an attacker could read system files readable for the
        webserver.
    
    CVE-2013-1643
    
        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.
