One of the easiest ways to prevent this is to add an .htaccess file to all upload directories. In the htaccess file paste this code.

Order allow,deny
allow from all

<FilesMatch "\.php$">
deny from all

This will prevent any php extentions from being uploaded and allow the standard image files.

Right, that may as well do if the Web server will only execute PHP scripts when they have .php extension.

I am sure there are still some servers that are configured to treat .php3 as PHP scripts. In that case the regular expression may be adjusted to "\.(php|php3)$" .

How your think about that code at .htaccess file in upload directory:

RemoveType php
<IfModule mod_php4.c>
php_flag engine 0
<IfModule mod_php5.c>
php_flag engine 0
