Description Stefan Behte (RETIRED) gentoo-dev Security 2009-12-18 00:57:59 UTC
CVE-2009-3558 (
  The posix_mkfifo function in ext/posix/posix.c in PHP 5.2.11 and
  earlier, and 5.3.x before 5.3.1, allows context-dependent attackers
  to bypass open_basedir restrictions, and create FIFO files, via the
  pathname and mode arguments, as demonstrated by creating a .htaccess
