I followed the suggestion to contact my ISP regarding this vulnerability.   After convincing them it was not a purely Coppermine issue (prior to 1.4.6), this is what they had to say:

>You're correct in stating that files with the .php.rar extension are
>parsed as PHP files, and that your sites visitors can upload such files
>to your webspace through a script, and have these files executed as PHP.
>This is not a vulnerability on our part. If you allow users to upload
>files via a script, they can also upload regular .php files as well and
>have them executed. Furthermore, you can control the MIME types of your
>files via a .htaccess file to prevent this..

This has long been fixed, do as we suggest and upgrade. It doesn't make sense to argue about outdated versions. Locking.
