    Ausrufezeichen PHP Affected by Critical Security Flaw

    An extremely serious security flaw has been discovered in PHP,
    requiring that all affected servers be updated as a matter of urgency.

    The flaw allows a remote webserver running an affected version of PHP
    to be crashed using nothing more than a URL request.

    If you are running a 64 bit version of PHP you are unaffected,
    but if you are running in 32 bit mode, or you are not sure,
    now would be a good time to drop everything and make sure
    that your server is not vulnerable, by installing the latest version
    of PHP either from ((login for URL)), or from your own webserver vendor.
    ((login for URL)) has a hotfix available already.

    Due to the massive impact of the flaw and the trivial way in which
    it can be exploited, news of this bug will spread rapidly so speed is
    of the essence in getting your server patched.
