As the Advisory suggests, the security fault affects only the 2 latest 
versions of PHP, all the people running older PHPs are not affected, so 
unless you've had the very latest stuff running this won't affect you and 
there will be no need to upgrade.  
If anything this will only convince people looking for 'stable' PHP to wait 
even longer before upgrading their releases because of potential bugs such as 
this one creeping up in 'new' releases.
