Many scripts, for example phpBB, have a basic bug. It exists in variables, which are being inserted into script, into specific functions. For example function htmlspecialchars()=0D
=0D
...=0D
	if (zend_parse_parameters(ZEND_NUM_ARGS() TSRMLS_CC, "s|ls", &str, &str_len, "e_style, &hint_charset, &hint_charset_len) == FAILURE) {=0D
		return;=0D
	}=0D
...=0D

As you can see there is a protection from formatting input variable. If the variable is other than string, we have error with Full Path Disclosure.=0D
