The remote host is running Feedsplitter, a PHP script for converting
RSS / RDF feeds into HTML.
The version of Feedsplitter installed on the remote host fails to
properly validate the 'format' parameter of the 'feedsplitter.php'
script before using it to parse an arbitrary XML file. An
unauthenticated attacker may be able to exploit this to discover the
contents of XML files or potentially even execute arbitrary PHP code.
