Test Description This test checks to see if allow_url_fopen is enabled. Security Implications If enabled, allow_url_fopen allows PHP's file functions -- such as file_get_contents() and the include and require statements -- can retrieve data from remote locations, like an FTP or web site. Programmers frequently forget this and don't do proper input filtering when passing user-provided data to these functions, opening them up to code injection vulnerabilities. A large number of code injection vulnerabilities reported in PHP-based web applications are caused by the combination of enabling allow_url_fopen and bad input filtering.

PHP’s inbuilt mail() function provides very limited mail functionality. Although its easy to send text emails, but thats pretty much the only thing you can do with it. If you need extended functionality like HTML emails or attachments, you can always go through a couple of hundred pages of mail specifications at IETF . Or you can stop trying to reinvent the wheel and use existing PHP mail libraries.

Here's a short explanation of the configuration directives. include_path string Specifies a list of directories where the require , include , fopen() , file() , readfile() and file_get_contents() functions look for files. The format is like the system's PATH environment variable: a list of directories separated with a colon in Unix or semicolon in Windows.
