Updated php packages fix security vulnerabilities :
A flaw was found in the way file's Composite Document Files (CDF)
format parser handle CDF files with many summary info entries. The
cdf_unpack_summary_info() function unnecessarily repeatedly read the
info from the same offset. This led to many file_printf() calls in
cdf_file_property_info(), which caused file to use an excessive amount
of CPU time when parsing a specially crafted CDF file (CVE-2014-0237).
A flaw was found in the way file parsed property information from
Composite Document Files (CDF) files. A property entry with 0 elements
triggers an infinite loop (CVE-2014-0238).
PHP contains a bundled copy of the file utility's libmagic library, so
it was vulnerable to this issue. It has been updated to the 5.5.13
version, which fixes this issue and several other bugs.
Additionally, php-apc has been rebuilt against the updated php
