Bug #11563 FileFunction macro in filestat.c appears to be missing a check (fix included)
Submitted: 2001-06-19 12:16 UTC Modified: 2005-01-31 23:15 UTC
From: henry at metroweb dot co dot za Assigned:
Status: Closed Package: Safe Mode/open_basedir
PHP Version: 4.0.5 OS: linux 245
Private report: No CVE-ID: None

safe_mode off
open_basedir in effect
disable_functions=system exec passthru chmod,...etc...

For ISPs safe_mode is too limiting; we use open_basedir extensively.  However, many is_* functions and all function calls which use the FileFunction macro in filestat.c ignore the open_basedir restriction completely (the only way around this of course is to disable all those useful funcs).

Fix follows:

Add this line after convert_to_string_ex(filename); \ in filestat.c (about line 628):

if (php_check_open_basedir((*filename)->value.str.val)) RETURN_FALSE; \
