radiusd: FreeRADIUS Version 1.1.8, for host i686-pc-linux-gnu, built on Mar  3 2010 at 18:01:19

here is the exact error I am getting

Warning: import_request_variables() [function.import-request-variables]: Numeric key detected - possible security hazard. in /usr/local/dialup_admin/conf/config.php3  on line 8

here is the code from dialup admin (config.php3)

# Things should work even if register_globals is set to off
$testVer=intval(str_replace(".", "",'4.1.0'));
$curVer=intval(str_replace(".", "",phpversion()));
if( $curVer >= $testVer )
# If using sessions set use_session to 1 to also cache the config file
$use_session = 0;
if ($use_session){
        // Start session
if (!isset($config)){
        $EXTRA_ARR = array();
        foreach($ARR as $val) {
                if (ereg('^[[:space:]]*#',$val) || ereg('^[[:space:]]*$',$val))

There are no errors in the error_log file in apache

As far as the procedure I was doing I was attempting to change a user password through the edit user screen.

Thank you for choosing

What version of FreeRADIUS?

I don't know if the dialup_admin code has been changed in recent
versions of FreeRADIUS or not, but you might want to paste the code in
question (five lines previous, and five lines following) in the
offending file.

Also, posting what you attempted to enter, and what your web server log
file states would also be relevant.

This isn't a FreeRADIUS problem fwiw. It is a problem with your setup.
I'm not trying to be ignorant, I'm just attempting to get that out of
the way. This is third party code you are having an issue with.

Post what I asked for. Someone here will be able to guide you to an
appropriate resource if they can't help directly.
