( Security fix ) testing/packages/php-5.1.5/php-5.1.5-i486-1_slack10.2.tgz: Usually packages in /testing aren't patched or upgraded after a release, but since quite a few people have probably deployed this one, and it is a network service, an upgraded package is being provided. Upgraded to php-5.1.5. Some of the security issues fixed in this release include: * Added missing safe_mode/open_basedir checks inside the error_log(), file_exists(), imap_open() and imap_reopen() functions. * Fixed possible open_basedir/safe_mode bypass in cURL extension and on PHP 5 with realpath cache. * Fixed a buffer overflow inside sscanf() function.
