[slackware-security]  php5 (SSA:2007-152-01)

New php5 packages are available for Slackware 10.2, 11.0, and -current to
fix security issues.  PHP5 was considered a test package in Slackware 10.2,
and an "extra" package in Slackware 11.0.  If you are currently running
PHP4 you may wish to stick with that, as upgrading to PHP5 will probably
require changes to your system's configuration and/or web code.

More details about the issues affecting Slackware's PHP5 may be found in
the Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) database:

  http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2007-1900
  http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2007-2756
  http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2007-2872

One CVE-issued vulnerability (CVE-2007-1887) does not affect Slackware as
we do not ship an unbundled sqlite2 library.


Here are the details from the Slackware 11.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
extra/php5/php-5.2.3-i486-1_slack11.0.tgz:
Upgraded to php-5.2.3.
  Here's some basic information about the release from php.net:
    "This release continues to improve the security and the stability of the
    5.X branch as well as addressing two regressions introduced by the
    previous 5.2 releases.  These regressions relate to the timeout handling
    over non-blocking SSL connections and the lack of HTTP_RAW_POST_DATA in
    certain conditions.  All users are encouraged to upgrade to this release."
  For more complete information, see:

    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2007-2756
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2007-2872
  (* 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.
