Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote web server contains a PHP script that allows execution of
arbitrary PHP code.
The 'includes/PEAR/PEAR.php' script included with the version of
Joomla installed on the remote host contains a programming flaw that
may allow an unauthenticated remote attacker to execute arbitrary PHP
code on the affected host, subject to the rights of the web server
Note that successful exploitation of this issue requires that PHP's
'register_globals' setting be enabled and that the remote version of
PHP be older than 4.4.1 or 5.0.6.
