Going through some literature, it seems like the use of registered
globals can cause security issues. Now, the dilemma, all my previous PHP
installations ( for the last year or so ) have come with register
globals = on in the php.ini file by default, and users on my system has
happily coded their websites using this function.
Now , with all the new versions of PHP, the registered globals are
turned off in the ini and will basically cause all those previous sites
not to function. Which means that I'm between a rock and a hard place,
turn the register globals back on and carry on with the security risks,
or keep it off and have all those people re-code their sites...
Is there a more "gentle" solution out there? Am I just misunderstanding
Any light on the matter will be appreciated.
