[slackware-security]  php for Slackware 11.0 reissued (SSA:2007-314-02)

The security/bug fix update for Slackware 11.0 has been reissued
to fix a zero-length /usr/bin/php-cgi.  Thanks to TJ Munro for
pointing this out.

Sorry for any inconvenience.


Here are the details from the Slackware 11.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
extra/php5/php-5.2.5-i486-2_slack11.0.tgz:
  The security/bug fix update for Slackware 11.0 has been reissued
  to fix a zero-length /usr/bin/php-cgi.  Thanks to TJ Munro for
  pointing this out.  We appreciate the fast weekend Q/A.  :-)
  This package should be installed rather than the previously
  released php-5.2.5-i486-1_slack11.0 (unless you do not use
  /usr/php/php-cgi in which case either package will do.)
  (* Security fix *)
+--------------------------+


Where to find the new package:
+-----------------------------+

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
directly 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.
