Templora.com:
Basic PHP Script Security
December 28, 2006 @ 15:49:05

As mentioned on Digg, there's a very simple guide to securing your PHP applications - or at least taking steps towards that.

For the purpose of this tutorial we have listed some commonly known attacks, and how to protect against them. This is crucial for beginners in PHP because PHP tutorials and basic documentation does not accentuate this problem enough. Examples are given that are vulnerable to attacks, and students are either not aware of the vulnerabilities, or are not adequately educated how to protect their scripts.

They topics they look at are SQL injections, XSS attacks, CSRF attacks, and PHP variable insertion. They talk talk about one of the best things you can do to help secure your site and its data - input filtering.

If you've been paying attention at all to the buzz in the PHP community lately, you'll know that articles like this are nothing new. These are the same things other developers are commenting on as well. It is good to see it get more exposure via digg though...
