    Several vulnerabilities were found in PHP, a general-purpose scripting
    language commonly used for web application development. The Common
    Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following issues:
    
    CVE-2013-6420
    
        Stefan Esser reported possible memory corruption in
        openssl_x509_parse().
    
    CVE-2013-6712
    
        Creating DateInterval objects from parsed ISO dates was
        not properly restricted, which allowed to cause a
        denial of service.
    
    In addition, the update for Debian 7 "Wheezy" contains several bugfixes
    originally targeted for the upcoming Wheezy point release.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in
    version 5.3.3-7+squeeze18.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
    version 5.4.4-14+deb7u7.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 5.5.6+dfsg-2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your php5 packages.
