I question the vulnerability.  I don't think it applies.  the alert is 
from 2006, and there isn't a POC I have tested against php52- 5.2.17 
with nulls in it that seems to trigger anything but 404 errors.
(please don't try on ours...  this is not a challenge. but if you have a 
POC, let me know and _I_ will try it)

so, php 5.3? big differences!  BIG.  look at /usr/ports/UPDATING to 
see.  php_ini needs changes also.
