Vendor Statements (disclaimer)

Due to the nature of safe_mode and open_basedir restrictions, and in alignment with the PHP group’s stance on these features, Mandriva does not consider this a security issue.

Official Statement from Red Hat (05/29/2007)

We do not consider these to be security issues. For more details see http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=169857#c1 and http://www.php.net/security-note.php
