A buffer overflow flaw was found in the way PHP parsed deeply nested
XML documents. If a PHP application used the xml_parse_into_struct()
function to parse untrusted XML content, an attacker able to supply
specially- crafted XML could use this flaw to crash the application
or, possibly, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user
running the PHP interpreter. (CVE-2013-4113)
After installing the updated packages, the httpd daemon must be
