                              flaw that allows a remote attacker to execute
                              arbitrary PHP code. This flaw exists because the
                              /wp-symposium/server/file_upload_form.php script
                              does not properly verify or sanitize
                              user-uploaded files. By uploading a .php file,
                              the remote system will place the file in a
                              user-accessible path. Making a direct request to
                              the uploaded file will allow the attacker to
                              execute the script with the privileges of the
                              web server.},
