is openbsd 3.9 php vulnerable? (Re[2]: [UPDATE] php5 to version 5.1.2 (IMPORTANT))


Can someone please give a straight answer about these PHP security
holes?  OpenBSD 3.9 released yesterday had packages supporting:
php 4.4.1p0
php 5.0.5p0
are either of these vulnerable? if so, is someone going to release
updated packages (not just ports)?

the php 5.1.3 release:

The security issues resolved include the following:

 * Disallow certain characters in session names.
 * Fixed a buffer overflow inside the wordwrap() function.
 * Prevent jumps to parent directory via the 2nd parameter of the tempnam() function.
 * Enforce safe_mode for the source parameter of the copy() function.
 * Fixed cross-site scripting inside the phpinfo() function.
 * Fixed offset/length parameter validation inside the substr_compare() function.
 * Fixed a heap corruption inside the session extension.
 * Fixed a bug that would allow variable to survive unset().
