Package: libapache2-mod-php5
Version: 5.2.10.dfsg.1-2

I'm using Debian squeeze/sid with Apache2, PHP5 and Postgresql 8.

When I upgraded to apache2-2.2.12 I started to get errors in the log file like this:

[Mon Aug 17 15:27:07 2009] [notice] Apache/2.2.12 (Debian) mod_auth_pgsql/2.0.3 PHP/5.2.10-2 with Suhosin-Patch mod_ssl/2.2.12 OpenSSL/0.9.8k configured -- resuming normal operations [Mon Aug 17 15:27:27 2009] [notice] child pid 27492 exit signal Segmentation fault (11) [Mon Aug 17 15:27:59 2009] [error] [client xx.xx.xx.xx] ALERT - canary mismatch on efree() - heap overflow detected (attacker 'xx.xx.xx.xx', file '/home/xxx\

The server seemed to have problems with connections being dropped before data was transfered. This caused blank or incomplete pages for the clients.

Since this is a production system I back-rev'ed to a previous version. The last package that was reverted to the previous version as the libapache2-mod-php5 package. Once this was restored to the 5.2.9.dfsg.1-4 version, the errors stopped.

Closing it now, thanks (forgot to close it together with 543525).
