Updating PHP5 to PHP 5.3.10 on Ubuntu

Thanks to Nathan Rennie-Waldock. you can have the latest PHP5 5.3.10 running in #Ubuntu Oneiric, Natty, Maverick and Lucid.

PHP 5.3.10 fixes critical remote code execution vulnerability

The vulnerability was introduced by the fix for a hash collision denial-of-service flaw

Proof-of-concept code that exploits this vulnerability has already been published online

Nathan Rennie-Waldock Personal Package Archives (PPA) is located at https://launchpad.net/~nathan-renniewaldock/+archive/ppa

Just run as root the following to use PHP 5.3.10

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nathan-renniewaldock/ppa
sudo apt-get update 
sudo apt-get upgrade

Canonical should be a little bit ashamed to not deliver these security patches for the server edition! relying on individuals to provide the latest version of secure software is not promoting #Linux in enterprise.
