[slackware-security]  php (SSA:2007-255-03)

New PHP5 packages are available for Slackware 10.1, 10.2, 11.0, and 12.0 to
fix "several low priority security bugs."

Note that PHP5 was not officially supported in Slackware 10.1 or 10.2
(being in the /testing directory), and was not the default version of
PHP for Slackware 11.0 (being in the /extra directory), but updates are
being provided anyway.


Here are the details from the Slackware 12.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/php-5.2.4-i486-1_slack12.0.tgz:
  Upgraded to php-5.2.4.  The PHP announcement says this version fixes over
  120 bugs as well as "several low priority security bugs."
  Read more about it here:
    http://www.php.net/releases/5_2_4.php
  (* 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
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.
