Re: PHP 5.2.12/5.3.1 session.save_path safe_mode and open_basedir bypass

safe_mode and open_basedir usually use small providers. Of course, this
is idiotic use safe_mode and open_basedir when we can bypass it via
The Hardened-PHP project already explained in 2006 that open_basedir and
symlink do not mix. It is a not fixable design problem. So any advisory
explaining how to bypass open_basedir with a symlink attack is just
repeating news from 4 years ago.
