[slackware-security]  php (SSA:2008-247-01)

New php packages are available for Slackware 10.2 and 11.0 to fix security
issues.  These releases are the last to contain PHP 4.4.x, which was upgraded
to version 4.4.9 to fix PCRE issues and other bugs.

Please note that this is the FINAL release of PHP4, and it has already passed
the announced end-of-life.  Sites should seriously consider migrating to PHP5
rather than upgrading to php-4.4.9.


Here are the details from the Slackware 11.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/php-4.4.9-i486-1_slack11.0.tgz:
  Upgraded to php-4.4.9.  This upgrades the bundled PCRE library to fix
  security issues, as well as fixing a few other security related bugs.
  See the PHP4 ChangeLog for more details:
    http://www.php.net/ChangeLog-4.php#4.4.9
  Please note:  PHP4 has been officially discontinued since last year, and
  reached the announced EOL on 2008-08-08.  Sites should consider migrating
  to a supported release.
  (* 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.
