Description

Multiple local privilege escalation are found in the symlink verification code. An attacker may use it to run a PHP script with the victim's privilege. This attack is a little harder when suphp operates in paranoid mode. For suphp that runs in owner mode which is the default in ports, immediate upgrade to latest version is advised.
