New php packages are available for Slackware 14.0, 14.1, and -current to
fix a security issue.

Here are the details from the Slackware 14.1 ChangeLog:

patches/packages/php-5.4.24-i486-1_slack14.1.txz: Upgraded.
The asn1_time_to_time_t function in ext/openssl/openssl.c in PHP before
5.3.28, 5.4.x before 5.4.23, and 5.5.x before 5.5.7 does not properly
parse (1) notBefore and (2) notAfter timestamps in X.509 certificates,
which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial
of service (memory corruption) via a crafted certificate that is not
properly handled by the openssl_x509_parse function.
For more information, see:
(* Security fix *)

Where to find the new packages:
