  - Calling 'popen()' with an invalid mode can cause a
    crash under Windows. (Bug #44683)

  - An integer overflow in 'xml_utf8_decode()' can make it
    easier to bypass cross-site scripting and SQL injection 
    protection mechanisms using a specially crafted string 
    with a long UTF-8 encoding. (Bug #49687)
