Evaluator Description

Mitre Description references "PHP 5.6 through 5.2.6" -- however research to the changelog for PHP 5 does not reflect a 5.6 release changelog: http://www.php.net/ChangeLog-5.php However, http://www.openwall.com/lists/oss-security/2008/08/08/2: "Those issues are fixed by the recent php-4.4.9 release, but they affect php-5.2.6 as well and the fixes are not part of any released version in case of 5.2."
