Checks for multiple vulnerabilities in PmWiki < 2.1 beta 21

enabled. For example, a possible hacker can exploit this issue to overwrite
the 'FarmD' variable before it's used in a PHP 'include()' function in
the 'pmwiki.php' script, which can allow him to view arbitrary files
on the remote host and even execute arbitrary PHP code, possibly taken
from third-party hosts.
