Actually, the isc.org announcement is a new unreported vulnerability,
that is being actively exploited.
The change in January [1, 2 above] did indeed take care of the
vulnerability as it appeared then, but a new attack vector has
been discovered that is somewhat related to the previous one.
All I can say is that 'register_globals' is totally evil.
