CVE-2012-0830 (
  The php_register_variable_ex function in php_variables.c in PHP 5.3.9 allows
  remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a request containing a large
  number of variables, related to improper handling of array variables.  NOTE:
  this vulnerability exists because of an incorrect fix for CVE-2011-4885.
Comment 13 GLSAMaker/CVETool Bot gentoo-dev 2012-02-26 22:47:16 UTC
CVE-2012-0831 (
  PHP before 5.3.10 does not properly perform a temporary change to the
  magic_quotes_gpc directive during the importing of environment variables,
  which makes it easier for remote attackers to conduct SQL injection attacks
  via a crafted request, related to main/php_variables.c, sapi/cgi/cgi_main.c,
  and sapi/fpm/fpm/fpm_main.c.
