PHP Fixes OpenSSL Flaws in New Releases
The PHP Group has released new versions of the popular scripting language that fix a number of bugs, including two in OpenSSL. The flaws fixed in OpenSSL don’t rise to the level of the major bugs such as Heartbleed that have popped up in the last few months. But PHP 5.5.14 and 5.4.30 both contain fixes for the two vulnerabilities, one of which is related to the way that OpenSSL handles timestamps on some certificates, and the other of which also involves timestamps, but in a different way.
