Think-PHP Blog:
Detect and fix security vulnerabilities on server side within seconds
September 07, 2006 @ 07:12:27

From the group that brings you Chorizo! and Morcilla, the latest in PHP security tools, is a video showing how to find and correct the issues that your script might have on the server side (with the help of Morcilla).

This video shows you how Morcilla, our brand new PHP extension, lets Chorizo! have a look inside your application on the server.

We are able to hook into every PHP function and trace the payloads of Chorizo!. By default, Morcilla hooks into the whole MySQL function family, fopen, mail, include/require/include_once/require_once, preg_* and others. With a ZendEngine patch, we are able to trace unset variables and a lot more.

The video (basically a screen capture of the process) is a bit hard to read in the smaller version, so it's recommended to view the larger size if you want to see the options. It's interesting, though, to see how it picks out the errors and tells what they are and where you can go to fix them (like a file inclusion issue, as they demonstrate).
