Subject: Re: Path disclosure in PHP 5.3.1

Hi,

I don't think this is a new vulnerability / warning.
I saw it 3 months ago in a comment from an anonymous user (on my blog):

English translation (by me, original was in Polish):
> 2009-09-24 10:39:34: "not one but two" well actually 3 :)
> I would like to say that as far as session start goes, there are three

The original comment, in Polish:
> 2009-09-24 10:39:34: "nie jeden a 2 błedy" a dokładnie 3 :)
> Chciałem tylko zaznaczyć że jeśli chodzi o session start można wywołać

> session data (files) lub open(/cos/sess_cos, O_RDWR) failed: in ...
