07.11.2005 - PHP 4.4.0 Released



View PHP related news. The PHP Development Team would like to announce the immediate release of PHP 4.4.0. This is a maintenance release that addresses a serious memory corruption problem within PHP concerning references. If references were used in a wrong way, PHP would often create memory corruptions which would not always surface and be visible. The increased middle digit was required because the fix that corrected the problem with references changed PHP's internal API. PHP 4.4.0 does not have any new features, and is solely a bugfix release. A separate release announcement is also available. For changes in PHP 4.4.0 since PHP 4.3.11, please consult the PHP 4 ChangeLog.

07.01.2005 - PEAR XML_RPC Vulnerability and PHP 4.4.0RC2 release



View PHP related news. An easily exploitable security issue was discovered in PEAR XML_RPC <= 1.3.0. We recommend that users of this PEAR class immediately upgrade to the latest version with: pear upgrade XML_RPC The same security problem exists in many other XML RPC implementations, please check if the installed applications that you use might have a similar problem. The new PEAR XML_RPC package is also bundled with the second release candidation of PHP 4.4.0RC2. Besides this new PEAR package there are two minor issues fixed since PHP 4.4.0RC1. As the improved reference support in PHP 4.4 might show as notices and warnings in your existing applications - in cases where PHP formerly just silently ignored this and often causing memory corruptions - we also recommend to test PHP 4.4.0RC2 with your applications. The final release is planned for July 11th. PHP 4.4.0RC2 can be found here.
