[slackware-security]  php (SSA:2007-127-01)

New php packages are available for Slackware 10.2, 11.0, and -current
to improve the stability and security of PHP.  Quite a few bugs were
fixed -- please see http://www.php.net for a detailed list.
All sites that use PHP are encouraged to upgrade.  Please note that
we haven't tested all PHP applications for backwards compatibility
with this new upgrade, so you should have the old package on hand
just in case.

Both PHP 4.4.7 and PHP 5.2.2 updates have been provided.


Here are the details from the Slackware 11.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
extra/php5/php-5.2.2-i486-1_slack11.0.tgz:
  Upgraded to php-5.2.2.
  This fixes bugs and improves security.
  For more details, see:
    http://www.php.net/releases/5_2_2.php
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2007-1001
  (* Security fix *)
patches/packages/php-4.4.7-i486-1_slack11.0.tgz:
  Upgraded to php-4.4.7.
  This fixes bugs and improves security.
  For more details, see:
    http://www.php.net/releases/4_4_7.php
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2007-1001
  (* Security fix *)
+--------------------------+


Where to find the new packages:
+-----------------------------+

HINT:  Getting slow download speeds from ftp.slackware.com?
Give slackware.osuosl.org a try.  This is another primary FTP site
for Slackware that can be considerably faster than downloading
from ftp.slackware.com.

Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab
(http://osuosl.org) for donating additional FTP and rsync hosting
to the Slackware project!  :-)

Also see the "Get Slack" section on http://slackware.com for
additional mirror sites near you.
