2002-0033: mod_php

by Nikola Strahija on March 1st, 2002 The php-package in TSL 1.1 and 1.2, had the following issues: - broken boundary check (hard to exploit) - arbitrary heap overflow (easy exploitable) These are now fixed. Also we upgraded from 3.0.17 to 3.0.18. The mod_php4 package in TSL 1.5 had the following issue: - broken boundary check (very easy to exploit, but not an issue in the default TSL configuration). This issue has also been adressed
