Variable overwrite vulnerability in interface/globals.php in OpenEMR

program variables and conduct other unauthorized activities, such as
conduct (a) remote file inclusion attacks via the srcdir parameter in
custom/import_xml.php or (b) cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks via
the rootdir parameter in interface/login/login_frame.php, via vectors
associated with extract operations on the (1) POST and (2) GET
superglobal arrays. NOTE: this issue was originally disputed before
the extract behavior was identified in post-disclosure analysis.
