On the SitePoint PHP blog today, Pax Dickinson shares with us the "Top 7 PHP Security Blunders" as he sees them.

In this article, I'll detail many of the common PHP programming mistakes that can result in security holes. By showing you what not to do, and how each particular flaw can be exploited, I hope that you'll understand not just how to avoid these particular mistakes, but also why they result in security vulnerabilities. Understanding each possible flaw will help you avoid making the same mistakes in your PHP applications.
