PHP vulnerability and portupgrade

Due to the recently discovered vulnerability in PHP versions older than
4.3.10 and 5.0.3, I decided to take a look at portupgrade to see if it is a
good way to keep the ports collection up-to-date with respect to security
issues. I ran cvsup on the security branch (tag=RELENG_5_3), then portsdb
-Uu. However, portupgrade didn't find any ports that needed an upgrade.
Am I doing something wrong or is portupgrade not the best tool to keep up
with security advisories in ports?
Thank you for your help :-)
