Mandriva Linux Security Advisory 2009:305: php

Some vulnerabilities were discovered and corrected in php:

PHP 5.2.11, and 5.3.x before 5.3.1, does not restrict the number
of temporary files created when handling a multipart/form-data POST
request, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(resource exhaustion), and makes it easier for remote attackers to
exploit local file inclusion vulnerabilities, via multiple requests,
related to lack of support for the max_file_uploads directive

The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
