Re: Re: [Full-disclosure] Apache suEXEC privilege elevation / information disclosure

This is in no way an exploit.

Apache behaviour is as expected.

When an user has the ability to activate FollowSymlinks and to create symlinks - than this is the fault of the systems 
operator.

In no way has this anything to do with suEXEC.

suEXEC *does not* disallow read access via HTTP requests to files owned by www-data. Everybody should know that only 
the cgi/php/whatever scripts are run as configured the suexec uid/gid but apache serving static files are read via 
www-data user.

Creating a symlink named 'test99.php' only adds confusion but has nothing to do with the fact that there is no exploit.
