Mozilla is a nightmare nobody can support - sadly.
Samba is security-supported, the fix is pending though, but will be
    released soon.
PHP is security supported and Debian is not vulnerable to the real
    vulnerabilities (CAN-2004-1019 and CAN-2004-1065), problems
    caused by faulty scripts are not considered an issue (and we'd
    have to issue a PHP updated every second day otherwise).

I can only hope that the situation with Mozilla, Firefox, Galeon,
Thunderbird and $whatnot will be better in sarge, but I have doubts.
