Cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in PHP, possibly 5.2.7 and earlier,

Comment 1 Tomas Hoger 2009-01-15 15:17:05 UTC
PHP packages as shipped in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and later set display_errors to off in the default php.ini configuration file.

Default setting for display_errors in PHP packages in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1 and 3 is on.
