- A stack-based buffer overflow exists in the 'imagepstext()' function in the GD extension. (Bug #53492 / CVE-2010-4698)

- The extract function does not prevent use of the EXTR_OVERWRITE parameter to overwrite the GLOBALS superglobal array and the 'this' variable, which allows attackers to bypass intended access restrictions. (CVE-2011-0752)
