Description of problem:
Current RPM's in updates for RH 7.2 and 7.3 is for php v4.1.2 which has a
serious bug (see URL). Please update to a newer version so no one else will go
insane like I did.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.use php sessions
2.lose time and money figureing out why they dont work
3.pull out hair
Also there is a serious security problem in that version of PHP:
I would say this is a critical update.
Hi, thanks for the report. Note that the security problems have been fixed in
the PHP errata updates for 7.x already.
Here is a serious bug that is biting lots of people:
Simple test case:
$ php -q 'exit(99);' ; echo $?
This should display 99 on your screen, instead I get 255.
Joe - that does not seem to be the case, that is why I reported the bug.
Yes, the version of the RPM is still "4.1.2" since we back-ported the fixes from
4.2.x and apply them to 4.1.2.
This was fixed in 8.0/9.
