    Package        : php5
    CVE ID         : CVE-2014-8142
    
    Several vulnerabilities were found in PHP, a general-purpose scripting
    language commonly used for web application development.
    
    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
    vulnerabilities are addressed by upgrading PHP to a new upstream version
    5.4.36, 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#5.4.36
    
    Two additional patches were applied on top of the imported new upstream
    version. An out-of-bounds read flaw was fixed which could lead php5-cgi
    to crash. Moreover a bug with php5-pgsql in combination with PostgreSQL
    9.1 was fixed (Debian Bug #773182).
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
    version 5.4.36-0+deb7u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your php5 packages.
