PHP v4.4.2 Released by cPanel

v4.4.2 has been released for inclusion in building apache/php on cPanel servers. I’ve upgraded all of our servers with it and it appears to be working well. From the php site:

This is a bug fix release, which addresses some security problems too. The major points that this release corrects are:

  • Prevent header injection by limiting each header to a single line.
  • Possible XSS inside error reporting functionality.
  • Missing safe_mode/open_basedir checks into cURL extension.
  • Apache 2 regression with sub-request handling on non-Linux systems.
  • key() and current() regression related to references.

This release also fixes about 30 other defects
