PHPClasses.org:
Another Serious Security Bug on PHP 5.3.9
February 06, 2012 @ 14:16:22

On the PHPClasses.org blog there's a new post detailing an issue that came up in the PHP 5.3.9 release that caused a large security issue (PHP 5.3.10 has, however, already been released to correct the issue).

PHP 5.3.9 release was mostly meant to fix a security bug, but it introduced a new more serious bug. PHP 5.3.10 was just released to fix this issue. [...] This time it is a bug that allows arbitrary remote code execution. This means that it allows to run arbitrary code on the server, injected by an eventual attacker, so it can be used to cause many types of damage inside a server.

The upgrade to PHP 5.3.10 is highly recommended to prevent this issue from effecting your applications. The post also mentions the dropping of Suhosin support (a security plugin for PHP) on the Debian linux distribution's default installation and how the PHP community has reacted to the decision.
