The original VIM post said this was false, but apparently only works when 
allow_url_fopen is enabled.

You would have to have allow_url_fopen enabled in order for that
vulnerability to exist which is disabled by default.



It just isn't completely accurate that it is a vulnerability considering 
it depends on how you configure your server. At anyrate those variables 
have been removed and those files do not look that way any longer so the 
page is complately inaccurate.

: I would like it removed because this is no longer accurate. It would
: also lead someone to believe it exists when a certain server
: configuration would have to be set in order for this to work. I am
: asking all sources to remove it.

What server configuration would make it vulnerable exactly?
register_globals or another PHP option?
