I have verified that the PoC in the bug report works with php4 from
sarge. With firefox it can be used to do XSS (konqueror just gives an
error message in this particular case). I think that such redirector
scriptlets that feed a request parameter into a Location-header
appear frequently in webapps. So I argue this should be fixed.
CVE-2005-3390 is register_globals=on only. It seems to be quite
severe, though, so maybe it should be fixed nonetheless.
BTW, wouldn't it make sense to formalize the security policy for php
(no register_globals, no safe_mode, no open_basedir) and put it into
the php package descriptions, README.Debians, and php.ini-comments
