|Description||** DISPUTED ** The mod_php module for the Apache HTTP Server allows local users with write access to PHP scripts to send signals to the server's process group and use the server's file descriptors, as demonstrated by sending a STOP signal, then intercepting incoming connections on the server's TCP port. NOTE: the PHP developer has disputed this vulnerability, saying "The opened file descriptors are opened by Apache. It is the job of Apache to protect them ... Not a bug in PHP."|

More of an apache flaw than a php flaw. And just one more reason
why you have lost as soon as an attacker can execute arbitrary
Probably an unfixable design flaw. But if you can execute a malicious
program, you can do $BADSTUFF anyway.
