In the Geeklog distribution, we have the following from

  require $glConf['path_libraries'] . 'Geeklog/MVCnPHP/ViewInterface.php';

which is the first statement.

However, this comes from some package called "MVCnPHP" which has some
close relationship with Geeklog but is separate:


which says "MVCnPHP stands for Model-View-Controller in PHP. It is an
implementation of the MVC design pattern for use in PHP applications."

... and downloading 3.0.0 of this MVCnPHP produces a BaseView.php
which, upon removing spaces and CRLF inconsistencies, is exactly the
same as that which is in Geeklog.

So we can add this to our list of modules whose ease-of-integration
makes opportunities for ease-of-exploitation.  Whether the blame lies
with Geeklog or MVCnPHP is not immediately clear.
