Changeset 46482 breaks upload when using ".." in upload_path. — at Initial Version

We just found out that changeset 46482 (https://core.trac.wordpress.org/changeset/46482/) in the latest WordPress 5.2.4 broke a huge number of our customer's sites (tens or thousands).

We uses a separate subdomain as upload directory. This is done by changing the option "upload_path" to "../../media.example.com/www/" (and "upload_url_path" to "http://media.example.com").

This change means that new directories (for example "./2019/10/") can't be created, which breaks the entire upload functionality.

If this changeset fixed some critical vulnerability which can't be fixed another way or if we are the only ones utilizing this feature, so be it. Otherwise this change might have to be reverted and reimplemented some other way.
