Slackware 10.2 / 11.0 / current : php5 (SSA:2007-152-01)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 25373


The remote Slackware host is missing a security update.


New php5 packages are available for Slackware 10.2, 11.0, and
-current to fix security issues. PHP5 was considered a test package in Slackware 10.2, and an 'extra' package in Slackware 11.0. If you are currently running PHP4 you may wish to stick with that, as upgrading to PHP5 will probably require changes to your system's configuration and/or web code.


Update the affected php package.
