PHP Group Plugs Security Holes
Page 1 of 1
The PHP Group on Friday issued a new version of the general-purpose scripting language to fix several potentially serious security vulnerabilities.
The open-source PHP, a project of the Apache Software Foundation (ASF), described version 4.3.2 as a strongly recommended upgrade for all users because of the "hazardous integer and buffer overflows" that have been fixed.
PHP 4.3.2 also squashes numerous bugs, 64-bit problems and contains an Apache 2.0 SAPI module.
PHP, which ships standard with a number of Web servers, including Red Hat Linux, has been busy fixing security-related problems, including an upgrade in February to fix a bug in the CGI SAPI.
