but the cloud based schema that drops PHP globals and includes
There must some known vulnerabilities with these cloud changes.
I just had 198 successive requests, which I've never had previously (at least that quantity):
"POST /wp-login.php HTTP/1.1" 403 0 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.3) Gecko/20010801"
Is the Apache environment getting set correctly?
Sounds like they'll need to fix this as it would break a lot of software.
I don't believe these hosts care what the consequences are. The only reason the changes are being made is because cloud-hosting is half-the-expense.
The host staff are so overwhelmed with transferring all their customers that they don't even know what day it is.
My informed me that they were going to upgrade the servers after all the transfers were complete. (late this week or early next).
