    A vulnerability has been discovered in php-pecl-http, the pecl_http
    module for PHP 5 Extended HTTP Support.  A type confusion vulnerability
    in the merge_param() function allows attackers to crash PHP and possibly
    execute arbitrary code via crafted HTTP requests.
    
    For Debian 8 "Jessie", this problem has been fixed in version
    2.0.4-1+deb8u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your php-pecl-http packages.
