Severity: critical Version: 3.7

After upgrading to 3.7.1 I noticed that all new items uploaded to media folder cannot be opened with "Forbidden 403 error". I believe the newly created folders "11" are not open for reading by everyone.Those issues do not exist for anything uploaded prior October, 2013

  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to 3.7.2
  • Version set to 3.7

The only related changeset appears to be [25047]. Moving for investigation.

More information regarding the permissions of the existing folders (wp-content/upload) and the other previously created folders would be good here.

The changeset didn't appear to change any logic - although it may be that PHP isn't applying the $mode to recursively created directories in some cases.

The only thing I've been able to find is that mkdir()'s $mode is affected by umask(), but chmod() isn't, that would be a behaviour change between 3.6 and 3.7.

umask basically sets the defaults for created files, by removing permissions from created files/directories.

This means that we cannot use the $recursive option of mkdir() AND use the $mode parameter reliably without a work around.

25822.diff attempts to work around this by in the event that it's detected that the umask altered the permissions it'd have created. In addition, dirname() doesn't return false, and also catches a case where stat() returns false resulting in the default value of 0777 not being used.

comment:7 @fboender15 months ago

There's a bug in the patch (and thus now in the live code) which causes the permission-fixing done by wp_mkdir_p to fail. This line:

1381:                if ( $dir_perms != $dir_perms & ~umask() ) {

Shoud be:

1381:                if ( $dir_perms != ($dir_perms & ~umask()) ) {

Right now, the condition is not met properly due to operator precedence. This causes the code to re-set the $dir_perms correctly to not be run.

I can attach a patch if desired.

Thanks a lot fboender! I'd like to confirm the bug and your patch for 3.8.

comment:9 @markoheijnen15 months ago

I think this ticket need to be closed since it was done for 3.8.

@fboender: Could you create a new ticket and add a patch to that one?

comment:10 @fboender15 months ago
