DESCRIPTION:
Solpot has reported a vulnerability in phpQuestionnaire, which can be
exploited by malicious people to compromise a vulnerable system.

Input passed to the "GLOBALS[phpQRootDir]" parameter in
inc/ifunctions.php isn't properly verified, before it is used to
include files. This can be exploited to include arbitrary files from
external and local resources.

Successful exploitation may require that "register_globals" is
enabled.

The vulnerability has been reported in version 3.12. Other versions
may also be affected.

SOLUTION:
Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly verified.
