Synopsis

The remote Slackware host is missing a security update.

Description

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:
