#58958 closed defect (bug) (duplicate)

WordPress gives false reports of insecure PHP still maintained by the OS.

Description

Commonly an OS (like Ubuntu, Debian, RedHat) will backport security fixes to a php version which is otherwise not maintained by PHP upstream.

Wordpress ignores this fact and asserts that it does not receive security updates which is wrong. Instead WordPress must also write about this assertion -- that it's assuming the PHP that it's using is upstream PHP.
