The PHP configuration setting "register_globals" is set to "On". It is generally recommended to disable this setting, because it can introduce security problems for scripts that are not carefully written. See alshttp://www.php.net/register_globals for more info on this subject.
Although the Phorum development team always tries to write code which cannot be affected by this setting in any way, we can never guarantee that it will be 100% safe.
Disable "register_globals" in the PHP configuration file "php.ini" on your webserver. If you are hosting with a company, please contact them to do this for you.
