    CVE ID         : CVE-2014-3710
    Debian Bug     : 68283
    
    Francisco Alonso of Red Hat Product Security found an issue in the file
    utility, whose code is embedded in PHP, a general-purpose scripting
    language.  When checking ELF files, note headers are incorrectly
    checked, thus potentially allowing attackers to cause a denial of
    service (out-of-bounds read and application crash) by supplying a
    specially crafted ELF file.
    
    As announced in DSA-3064-1 it has been decided to follow the stable
    5.4.x releases for the Wheezy php5 packages. Consequently the
    vulnerability is addressed by upgrading PHP to a new upstream version
    5.4.35, which includes additional bug fixes, new features and possibly
    incompatible changes. Please refer to the upstream changelog for more
    information:
    
     http://php.net/ChangeLog-5.php#5.4.35
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 5.4.35-0+deb7u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your php5 packages.
