The remote web server contains a PHP script that is prone to a remote
file include vulnerability.

function. Provide PHP's 'register_globals' setting is enabled, an
unauthenticated attacker can exploit this flaw to run arbitrary code,
possibly taken from third-party hosts, subject to the rights of
the web server user id.
