Suhosin is an advanced protection system for PHP installations.
It was designed to protect servers and users from known and unknown flaws
in PHP applications and the PHP core.

that implements a few low-level protections against bufferoverflows or
format string vulnerabilities.

This package includes only the extention.
After installation the 'php -v' command should list it as loaded.
