#15090 closed defect (bug) (maybelater)

wp_rand() max integer is guessed and might fail

the wp_rand() function returns a (forced) integer value. for this it assumes a maximum of a 32 bit unsigned integer.

wordpress uses signed integer values. the made assumption will fail on 32 bit systems then.

wordpress minimum php requirements prevent the use of constants like PHP_INT_MAX for 3.0.x and 3.1.x.
