What’s new in PHP 8.1.11?

PHP is actively developed, and the latest minor version of line eight introduces some very nice bug fixes.

Denial of service with a file

Especially the fix for phar wrapper cough my attention. PHAR is a software to bundle PHP files into apps.

It occurs that the PHP wrapper for PHAR can in a specific situation go into an infinite loop. The bug became important to fix because it affects all file methods like file_exists etc.
