        Stefan Esser discovered that the ArrayObject and the
        SPLObjectStorage unserialize() handler do not verify the type of
        unserialized data before using it. A remote attacker could use this
        flaw to execute arbitrary code.
    
    CVE-2014-4721
    
        Stefan Esser discovered a type confusion issue affecting phpinfo(),
        which might allow an attacker to obtain sensitive information from
        process memory.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
    version 5.4.4-14+deb7u12. In addition, this update contains several
    bugfixes originally targeted for the upcoming Wheezy point release.
    
    For the testing distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
    version 5.6.0~rc2+dfsg-1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 5.6.0~rc2+dfsg-1.
