New php packages are available for Slackware 12.1, 12.2, 13.0, 13.1, 13.37, 14.0, and -current to fix a security issue.

Here are the details from the Slackware 14.0 ChangeLog:

patches/packages/php-5.4.16-i486-1_slack14.0.txz: Upgraded. This is a bugfix release. It also fixes a security issue -- a heap-based overflow in the quoted_printable_encode() function, which could be used by a remote attacker to crash PHP or execute code as the 'apache' user. For more information, see: ( Security fix )

Where to find the new packages:

Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab ( for donating FTP and rsync hosting to the Slackware project! :-)
