----------------lib/Richtxt_functions.inc.php-------------------
<?php
//try to integrate the wikimedia engine functions

Input passed to the "root_path" parameter in lib/Richtxt_functions.inc.php is not properly verified before being used to include files. 
This can be exploited to include arbitrary files from local or external resources.
Successful exploitation requires that "register_globals" is enabled.
