CVE-2011-1938 (
  Stack-based buffer overflow in the socket_connect function in
  ext/sockets/sockets.c in PHP 5.3.3 through 5.3.6 might allow
  context-dependent attackers to execute arbitrary code via a long pathname
  for a UNIX socket.
Comment 2 Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2011-09-13 22:08:35 UTC
I checked manually php-5.3.8 sources, and the commit at $URL seems applied.

=dev-lang/php-5.3.8 is stable on all arches.

So, as per A1 one of you can add glsa request.
