We are pleased to announce the deployment of PHP 5.4 on our newest servers. While the default PHP version will still be 5.3 on these servers, customers will have the option to switch to between three versions of PHP: 5.2, 5.3, or 5.4. For step-by-step instructions on how to change your PHP version through cPanel, please see our tutorial How to Switch Between PHP Versions.

If you are currently on a server that does not support newer versions of PHP but would like to use either PHP 5.3 or 5.4, please submit a request to our Support Department to request an account move to a server that supports PHP 5.3 and 5.4. Please make sure you include the cPanel user name or main domain name on the account along with account verification (either your AMP password or last 4 digits of the credit card on file).

there is a big security risk available in php v.5.4.0, I highly suggest the host to upgrade immediately to v.5.4.3

And for people not able to update/apply a patch, this mod_rewrite condition and
rule should take care of it for Apache users:

[code]RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^(%2d|-)[^=]+$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*) ? [L][/code]

[08-May-2012] The PHP development team would like to announce the immediate availability of PHP 5.4.3 and PHP 5.3.13. All users are encouraged to upgrade to PHP 5.4.3 or PHP 5.3.13

The releases complete a fix for a <a href='http://www.php.net/archive/2012.php#id2012-05-03-1'>vulnerability</a> in CGI-based setups (CVE-2012-2311). Note: mod_php and php-fpm are not vulnerable to this attack.

PHP 5.4.3 fixes a buffer overflow vulnerability in the <a href='http://php.net/manual/function.apache-request-headers.php'>apache_request_headers()</a> (CVE-2012-2329). The PHP 5.3 series is not vulnerable to this issue.

For source downloads of PHP 5.4.3 and PHP 5.3.13 please visit our <a href='http://www.php.net/downloads.php'>downloads page</a>, Windows binaries can be found on <a href='http://windows.php.net/download/'>windows.php.net/download/</a>. The list of changes are recorded in the <a href='http://www.php.net/ChangeLog-5.php'>ChangeLog</a>.
