Description

USN-99-1 fixed a safe mode bypass which allowed malicious PHP scripts to circumvent path restrictions by creating a specially crafted directory whose length exceeded the capacity of the realpath() function (CAN-2004-1064). However, this caused severe regressions, some applications like SquirrelMail and Gallery did not work any more, and the package ‘php4-pear’ was empty. The current version repairs this.

In addition this update fixes a crash of the PHP interpreter if curl_init() was called with a non-string argument. Please note that this is not security relevant since this condition usually cannot be triggered externally.
