#3357 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

wp_die('GLOBALS overwrite attempt detected') before wp_die() included.

Reported by: AlanJCastonguay Owned by:
Milestone: 2.1 Priority: normal
Severity: minor Version: 2.1
Component: General Keywords: globals wp_die
Focuses: Cc:


On line 8 of wp-settings.php, wp_die() is used to display a friendly error message if a key named GLOBALS is seen in the request array. Aka, someone is trying to inject variables into the global scope.
8: wp_die('GLOBALS overwrite attempt detected');

wp_die() is defined in WPINC/functions.php, which is required on line 130 of the same file. Thus, the call to wp_die() fails, as it is not yet defined.

Should probably by reverted to die(), similar to changeset:4072
