[slackware-security]  php (SSA:2006-307-01)

New php packages are available for Slackware 10.2 and 11.0 to
fix security issues.

More details about this issue may be found in the Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) database:

  http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2006-5465


Here are the details from the Slackware 11.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
extra/php5/php-5.2.0-i486-1.tgz:  Upgraded to php-5.2.0.
  This release "includes a large number of new features, bug fixes and security
  enhancements."  In particular, when the UTF-8 charset is selected there are
  buffer overflows in the htmlspecialchars() and htmlentities() that may be
  exploited to execute arbitrary code.
  More details about the vulnerability may be found here:
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2006-5465
  Further details about the release can be found in the release announcement:
    http://www.php.net/releases/5_2_0.php
  Some syntax has changed since PHP 5.1.x.  An upgrading guide may be found at
  this location:
    http://www.php.net/UPDATE_5_2.txt
  This package was placed in /extra rather than /patches to save people from
  possible surprises with automated upgrade tools, since users of PHP4 and
  PHP 5.1.x applications may need to make some code changes before things will
  work again.
  (* Security fix *)
patches/packages/php-4.4.4-i486-4_slack11.0.tgz:  Patched the UTF-8 overflow.
  More details about the vulnerability may be found here:
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2006-5465
  (* Security fix *)

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.
