Someone just tried to add a security backdoor in the PHP language – TechRadar

Two malicious changes were made to the development branch of the upcoming PHP v8.1 in an attempt to add a backdoor to any website that runs this tainted version of the popular web development language.

While the objectionable code was caught and removed within a few hours, given the fact that PHP powers almost 80% of all websites on the Internet, the PHP developers have made some key infrastructural changes while they investigate the incident.
