If you are running with apache >= 2.0, which many sites are, then apache
will strip the malicious components of the URL and the defense in
true_path will never get triggered because it will never see the
malformed URL passed by apache. Thus there is no way to test it with
apache >= 2.0, in fact you're not vulnerable to begin with.
