--
Ease of Attack:
Simple.

--
False Positives:
None Known.

--
False Negatives:
None Known.

--
Corrective Action:
Check the php implementation on the host. Ensure all measures have been taken to deny access to sensitive files.

Apply the appropriate vendor supplied patches.

Check the host for signs of compromise.
