Hi Wael,

This is a setting in PHP which can pose various security issues. It has been deprecated as of version 5.3.0 but in many installations remains on as default at installation time.

Information on how to turn it off is available from the php website: http://www.php.net/manual/en/ini.core.php#ini.register-globals and http://php.net/manual/en/security.globals.php
