: 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.

This was previously disclosed and fixed in the 5.2.x tree. I believe this 
is the same as CVE-2009-3292.

:     * 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).

Also not flagged as 'security' up top, but from the changelog:

Fixed bug #49026 (proc_open() can bypass safe_mode_protected_env_vars 
restrictions). (Ilia)
