hello! php security team.I find one .user.ini vulnerabilityinfluences all have .user.ini php versionstest verision = php5.4.user.ini Can be configured open_basedir, i use open_basedir as exampleimage1: that attackers can not cross this directory and read system fileimage2: think .user.ini just The current directory takes effect,so...again write one .user.ini And the original Do not conflict?

Test script:
We just have upload file Permissions:image3: new directory and write new .user.ini:open_basedir=/image4:!don't need restart,just wait a few minutes,can bypass .user.ini limit:image5:

Yes, a setting in default/bypass/.user.ini will override a setting in default/.user.ini. That is how it is supposed to work.
If an attacker is able to create files on the server then PHP cannot stop them. If open_basedir is a problem then it should be set at the server level (eg, php.ini).

but this is .user.ini fault, .user.ini set open_basedir=/home/wwwroot/default, just It should not cross the directory!
