    CVE ID         : CVE-2014-4049
    Debian Bug     : 751364
    
    It was discovered that PHP, a general-purpose scripting language
    commonly used for web application development, is vulnerable to a
    heap-based buffer overflow in the DNS TXT record parsing. A malicious
    server or man-in-the-middle attacker could possibly use this flaw to
    execute arbitrary code as the PHP interpreter if a PHP application uses
    dns_get_record() to perform a DNS query.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
