New php packages are available for Slackware 14.0, 14.1, and -current to
fix a security issue.


Here are the details from the Slackware 14.1 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/php-5.4.27-i486-1_slack14.1.txz:  Upgraded.
  This update fixes a security issue in the in the awk script detector
  which allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service
  (CPU consumption) via a crafted ASCII file that triggers a large amount
  of backtracking.
  For more information, see:
