        Stefan Esser discovered that the ArrayObject and the
        SPLObjectStorage unserialize() handler do not verify the type of

    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
