Both variables ($app_path and $puntal_path) are defined in the index.php
file. As such they will never be overridden when the variables are passed

global scope before the page is processed by the PHP processor engine
(assuming register globals is enabled, which it hasn't been in a default PHP
install in a long time).
Line 29 of index.php: $app_path = '/';
Line 41 of index.php: $puntal_path = dirname(__FILE__).$app_path;

specifically designed to unregister global variables in the global scope of
This is not an exploit. Never was.
Nothing to see here... Move along.
