PEAR PHP Compromised - we are investigating servers now, scheduled 2 months ago

If you use the popular PEAR PHP extension or have within the last 6 months, there is a possibility that a backdoor could have been introduced depending on how you installed the extension.

"... this does not affect the PEAR installer package itself... it affects the go-pear.phar executable that you would use to initially install the PEAR installer. Using the pear command to install various PEAR package is not affected."

There is still a lot of questions and PEAR PHP are in the process of investigating the full extent of what happened. Please check the references below for the latest updates.
