Hi,

if you are aware about security scans than you should not use XAMPP.
XAMPP is a local test and development environment and as such it is not needed to react on each security vulnerability.
Is this security vulnerability a problem for a local test and development environment at all? A security assessment is worthless if an experienced it expert will not set these results into the right context. XAMPP is not optimized against security at all.

There will be a new XAMPP version, but when its done and which components it includes, i don't know. There is no public accessible release plan.

Install and couple all the single components yourself than you have the full control about the versions included and can upgrade a single component at once instead needed to switch the full stack.

best wishes,

No way, you cannot upgrade Xampp on yourself. That is a major disadvantage of using Xampp, as it is not part of the known linux repositories. If you need newer versions than Xampps, do not use Xampp, instead install Apache etc. from the repository of your distribution.

Well, ppl here on forum won´t help you with this, since it is not the purpose of the forum. If you really need it, better try to learn some basic compiling, install xampp with dev files on your machine, prepare the environment and rebuild apache on your own. I´ve made this a couple of times, not so hard. Good Luck :mrgreen:
