Vendor Statements (disclaimer)

Official Statement from Red Hat (04/02/2008)

The PHP interpreter does not offer a reliable "sandboxed" security layer (as found in, say, a JVM) in which untrusted scripts can be run any script run by the PHP interpreter must be trusted with the privileges of the interpreter itself. This bug described in CVE-2007-2511 can only be triggered by a script author since no trust boundary is crossed, this issue is not treated as security-sensitive.
