    This update corrects a packaging error for the packages released in
    DSA-3008-1. The new sessionclean script used in the updated cronjob in
    /etc/cron.d/php5 was not installed into the php5-common package. No
    other changes are introduced. For reference, the original advisory text
    follows.
    
    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 problems:
    
    CVE-2014-3538
    
        It was discovered that the original fix for CVE-2013-7345 did not
        sufficiently address the problem. A remote attacker could still
        cause a denial of service (CPU consumption) via a specially-crafted
        input file that triggers backtracking during processing of an awk
        regular expression rule.
    
    CVE-2014-3587
    
        It was discovered that the CDF parser of the fileinfo module does
        not properly process malformed files in the Composite Document File
        (CDF) format, leading to crashes.
    
    CVE-2014-3597
    
        It was discovered that the original fix for CVE-2014-4049 did not
        completely address the issue. A malicious server or
        man-in-the-middle attacker could cause a denial of service (crash)
        and possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted DNS TXT record.
    
    CVE-2014-4670
    
        It was discovered that PHP incorrectly handled certain SPL
        Iterators. A local attacker could use this flaw to cause PHP to
        crash, resulting in a denial of service.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
    version 5.4.4-14+deb7u13. In addition, this update contains several
    bugfixes originally targeted for the upcoming Wheezy point release.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems will be fied soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your php5 packages.
