In another (old) thread I saw a link to an "Auto Replace" program, that would read through the scripts and make some modifications automatically. The link didn't work though (from 2004 or 2005). Does anyone know where to find such a program, or possibly advise on any protective changes I could perform in my scripts?
I hope there is some kind of protection to at least remove some loop-holes?
If you are running an old version of software that has not been patched since register_globals has been addressed ... I think you may have more issues than just register globals. I would upgrade the software. Surely there is an upgrade path for you?
Probably this would be a good thing to do, but the issue of Register Globals has not yet been formally addressed in oscommerce. The only solution is a contribution made by a private guy, but this does not take into consideration all the code made in the other private contributions.
Rather than starting a big project to prepare my Oscommerce sites for PHP5, and register Globals, I would appreciate some advise to make my sites a bit safer. Although I know of course that the right thing to do would be a complete code clean-up and then go to PHP5. But s mentioned, there seems to be no development on the oscommerce platform, so I would prefer to migrate to a never platform and put my efforts in this project.

I guess that is what I was attempting to do. The last thing I want you to have is a false sense of security. The only think Using Register Globals [php.net] is going to do for you is make sure you are initializing and using variables as intended.
