ownCloud’s security team has reported quite some vulnerabilities in well known and widely used 3rdparty libraries. Most notably:

- ZendFramework: http://framework.zend.com/security/advisory/ZF2014-01
- SabreDAV: http://www.cvedetails.com/cve/CVE-2013-1939/ + http://www.cvedetails.com/cve/CVE-2014-2055/
- TCPDF: https://github.com/tcpdf-clone/tcpdf/commit/8ec040b3ccedc2a0150a7b6b46c18c59d932ad59
- GetID3: https://github.com/JamesHeinrich/getID3/commit/dc8549079a24bb0619b6124ef2df767704f8d0bc (also used by Wordpress and so on…)
- PHPExcel: https://github.com/PHPOffice/PHPExcel/commit/c243bcb8ad2911cdbd0c272b284a516b444e606a
- PHPDocX: http://www.cvedetails.com/cve/CVE-2014-2056/

Also in quite some other components but those are not that widely used as the ones pointed out above. Also every one of the bugs pointed out above allowed an attacker to either execute arbitrary PHP Code or read arbitrary files from the system :-)
