The mb_parse_str function in PHP 4.0.0 through 4.4.6 and 5.0.0 through 5.2.1 sets the internal register_globals flag and does not disable it in certain cases when a script terminates which allows remote attackers to invoke available PHP scripts with register_globals functionality that is not detectable by these scripts as demonstrated by forcing a memory_limit violation.
