[slackware-security]  php (SSA:2007-053-01)

New php packages are available for Slackware 10.2 and 11.0 to improve the
stability and security of PHP.  Quite a few bugs were fixed -- please
see http://www.php.net for a detailed list.  All sites that use PHP are
encouraged to upgrade.  Please note that we haven't tested all PHP
applications for backwards compatibility with this new upgrade, so you
should have the old package on hand just in case.

Both PHP 4.4.5 and PHP 5.2.1 updates have been provided.

Some of these issues have been assigned CVE numbers and may be referenced
in the Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) database:

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.
