CONECTIVA LINUX SECURITY ANNOUNCEMENT

PACKAGE   : php4
SUMMARY   : Fixes for multiple php4 vulnerabilities
DATE      : 2005-05-31 09:03:00
ID        : CLA-2005:955

DESCRIPTION
 PHP[1] is a very popular scripting language used by web servers to
 offer dynamic content.
 
 This announcement fixes eleven vulnerabilities found in php 4.3.10.
 For further information, please refer to php4's changelog[2].
 
 For Conectiva Linux 10, this announcement also adds support to
 /etc/php.d include directory. Our %post routines will continue to
 change php.ini directly though in order to not change this behaviour
 for Conectiva Linux 10.


SOLUTION
 It is recommended that all PHP4 users upgrade their packages.
 
 IMPORTANT:
 If PHP4 is being used as an Apache module, the web server has to be
 restarted after the upgrade if it was already running. To do so,
 please run, as root:
 
 # service httpd stop
 
 (wait a few seconds and check with "ps ax|grep httpd" if there are
 any httpd processes running. On a busy webserver this could take a
 little longer.)
 
 # service httpd start
