Agreed, although SpC-X has certainly been responsible for claiming
things such as this:

  $phphg_real_path = "./";
  include($phphg_real_path . 'common.php');

are exploitable when in fact they're not, regardless of any of PHP's

Btw, anyone else notice that SpC-X's web site at
http://www.root-security.org/ is giving 404's for everything now?
