Subject: CVE request: php 5.3.1 update


PHP was updated to version 5.3.1 and did also address security

Security Enhancements and Fixes in PHP 5.3.1:

    * Added "max_file_uploads" INI directive, which can be set to limit the number of file uploads per-request to 20 by default, to prevent possible DOS via temporary file exhaustion.
    * Added missing sanity checks around exif processing.
    * Fixed a safe_mode bypass in tempnam().
    * Fixed a open_basedir bypass in posix_mkfifo().
    * Fixed bug #50063 (safe_mode_include_dir fails).
    * Fixed bug #44683 (popen crashes when an invalid mode is passed).
