Slackware New php packages are available for Slackware 11.0, 12.0, 12.1, 12.2, 13.0, 13.1, 13.37, and -current to fix security issues. [More Info...]
[slackware-security]  php (SSA:2011-237-01)

New php packages are available for Slackware 11.0, 12.0, 12.1, 12.2, 13.0,
13.1, 13.37, and -current to fix security issues.

Here are the details from the Slackware 13.37 ChangeLog:
patches/packages/php-5.3.8-i486-1_slack13.37.txz:  Upgraded.
  Security fixes vs. 5.3.6 (5.3.7 was not usable):
  Updated crypt_blowfish to 1.2. (CVE-2011-2483)
  Fixed crash in error_log(). Reported by Mateusz Kocielski
  Fixed buffer overflow on overlog salt in crypt().
  Fixed bug #54939 (File path injection vulnerability in RFC1867
  File upload filename). Reported by Krzysztof Kotowicz. (CVE-2011-2202)
  Fixed stack buffer overflow in socket_connect(). (CVE-2011-1938)
  Fixed bug #54238 (use-after-free in substr_replace()). (CVE-2011-1148)
  For more information, see:
  For those upgrading from PHP 5.2.x, be aware that quite a bit has
  changed, and it will very likely not 'drop in', but PHP 5.2.x is not
  supported by any longer, so there wasn't a lot of choice
  in the matter.  We're not able to support a security fork of
  PHP 5.2.x here either, so you'll have to just bite the bullet on
  this.  You'll be better off in the long run.  :)
  (* Security fix *)
