[slackware-security]  php (SSA:2006-045-07)

New php packages are available for Slackware 10.2 and -current to
fix minor security issues.

More details about these issues may be found on the PHP website:

  http://www.php.net/release_4_4_2.php


Here are the details from the Slackware 10.2 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/php-4.4.2-i486-1.tgz:  Upgraded to php-4.4.2.
  Claims to fix "a few small security issues".
  For more information, see:
    http://www.php.net/release_4_4_2.php
  (* Security fix *)
patches/packages/php-4.4.2-i486-2.tgz:  Rebuilt the package to
  clean up some junk dotfiles that were installed in the /
  directory.  Harmless, but sloppy...
  Thanks to Krzysztof Oledzki for pointing this out.
patches/packages/php-4.4.2-i486-3.tgz:  Fixed some more bugs from the 4.4.2
  release...  hopefully the third time is the charm.
  Replaced PEAR packages for which the 4.4.2 release contained incorrect
  md5sums:  Archive_Tar-1.3.1, Console_Getopt-1.2, and HTML_Template_IT-1.1.3.
  (this last one was also not upgraded to the stable version that was released
  on 2005-11-01)  Sorry to have delayed the advisories, but these bugs had to
  be fixed first.  IMHO, the security issues are of dubious severity anyway,
  or a more agressive approach would have been taken (though this would likely
  have caused a lot of people to upgrade to the broken -1 or -2 package
  revisions, so anyone who didn't know about this until now was probably saved
  a hassle.)
  Upgraded other PEAR modules to HTTP-1.4.0, Net_SMTP-1.2.8, and XML_RPC-1.4.5.
  Thanks again to Krzysztof Oledzki for the bug report.
