Webmaster News : PHP Updates: Critical Issues Resolved By 5.2.17 and 5.3.5
Posted by on 2011/1/11 10:33:34 (898 reads)

The PHP developers have released another update for both the 5.2 series and the 5.3 series. There is a critical issue that can cause PHP to hang and crash, causing your application to stall. They have provided a simple script you can run on your server (only from the command line, so this isn't for most people to test) to test for the vulnerability. I ran it in my local test environment and found it failed the test.

If your server is affected, you are strongly urged to upgrade to PHP 5.2.17 or 5.3.5.

Webmaster News : PHP Update: 5.2.16 Released
Posted by on 2010/12/17 23:03:23 (1057 reads)

It appears the PHP development team has not quite put the 5.2 series to bed and have released another update for it. PHP 5.2.16 addresses a regression error introduced in 5.2.15 for open_basedir implementations. If you use open_basedir in your application and are using PHP 5.2.15, you should update your PHP installation to 5.2.16 or 5.3.4.

PHP 5.2.16 also fixes a crash in the PDO::pgsql driver when attempting to retrieve data when the server is unavailable.
