Hello everyone.  As a courtesy to the community I'd like to share the following information.

Please be advised that an apparently very serious PHP vulnerability has turned up.   Details are at the following links as well as http://php.net/

Apparently a team discovered this vulnerabilty while conducting a "white hat" hacking event, told the authors at PHP about the vulnerability, and some months later while the PHP folks were still developing a fix, they themselves (the PHP folks) managed to reveal the details of the vulnerabiity to the public.  Brilliant...

I received the information about this from multiple sources and it looks like folks are taking this pretty seriously.

From what I have read, this vulnerability only affects Linux servers, and I have not yet seen anything saying that it will impact Windows servers.  Preferring to take a posture of caution, we are already taking precautions with our own servers.

I'd recommend you  refer to the above articles in communicating with whomever you host with, ask them to asses the risk, and requesting that they take any appropriate actions.

Never a dull moment is it?
