This is a leet advisory, s0 l33t. Just read it and be quiet.
There is a BIGBUG in all php versions, in the include() function.
If this function is badly used, a roxor hax0r (like us) can compromise
a box remotely. He can execute commands with apache rights.
include($page); // <--- fucking lame
register_globals = off
allow_url_fopen = false
For php versions < 4.0.4, compile with --disable-url-fopen-wrapper
Basic comprehension skills, and a quick check of the PHP manual tells you all
you need to know. The PHP folks have advocated for over a year to disable
register_globals and use the super globals instead.
Using include or require with a variable that the user can supply is just poor
coding, not a bug in the language.
