php-fpm uses the fastcgi protocol, which is not the same as cgi and therefor not vulnerable.
I'm the third party you're talking about, the developer of phpAdsNew. Sadly, things took a turn for the worse when the company OpenAds (now OpenX) decided to make a business out of the advertising server. Although they've made a lot of money, the open source version has been neglected completely.
I put the download page online because I didn't like the fact that you had to register, but I'm haven't been involved in the project since 2002, so there's not much I can do about this shameful bug.
Belgian ISP Telenet is doing this on 600.000 of its customers' routers. They call it 'homespot'.
Customers can login to any homespot (another customer's router) or any hotspot (at restaurants, airports, train stations, etc.) free of charge.
Works fine in Belgium, where there's hundreds of cameras and we see a steady decrease in the number of casualties at those lights. But maybe that's because there are so many, people actually start slowing down well in advance and don't hit the brakes as soon as they see a camera...
True, but I can't find a 14" with a screen HD 1920x1200 or 1920x1080... my Dell Latitude D820 was perfect offering all the bells and whistles without the keypad, but the successor has a keypad
Good advice, but impossible to do if you have a modern laptop, because even 15" laptops now have a keypad by default. It drives me crazy, because it means the keyboard is off-center and the glidepath is off-center.
Makes me wonder what idiot came up with the idea that 15" laptops needed a keypad ?
Actually it will already work on PHP 5.2/5.3 if it was compiled with --enable-zend-multibyte but that will depend on the hosting provider or the distribution being used.
So checking whether the host has this enabled (phpinfo() will tell you) is your best bet.
For 5.4 you still need to have it compiled with --enable-zend-multibyte but now you can disable it in php.ini
The fact that 5.4 doesn't introduce any backward incompatibilities should also increase the adoption rate significantly.
To fix your problem, set 'zend.multibyte = 1' in php.ini
The problem here might not be the open tag, but closing tag. If you use include(_once) or require(_once) and you used a closing tag in the file you're trying to include or require, you hve to be careful nothing follows that closing tag (like a newline...).
The best option is :
- Never to use a closing tag, since it's optional anyway
- To use a standard PHP IDE to write your code

Make sure you have PHP_CodeSniffer version 1.3, not 1.2, otherwise it won't work...
Keep in mind that it doesn't guarantee full compatibility with PHP 5.4, but it does all the automated checks it can do, so that's a huge timesaver.
Including it it Debian or any other distribution is certainly a good idea. But I recommend waiting a week or two... I just released it today, so there may be some minor bugs in there...
If you want to get your code compatible, a start is to scan it automatically : https://github.com/wimg/PHPCompatibility - just released for 5.4 as well
Almost everything planned for PHP 6 is in 5.4, except for full unicode support, which was slowing down the entire language too much.
Using the PHPCompatibility Codesniffer rules will get you a long way : https://github.com/wimg/PHPCompatibility
You're absolutely right !
