Devshed has posted a new article covering one of the hottest topics in the PHP community right now - security.
Security in a scripting language such as PHP is more developer-dependent than language-dependent. In other words, although the language offers you the tools to create secure code, it cannot prevent insecure code. Thus, the degree to which code is secure almost entirely depends on how security conscious a developer is.
The article looks at three security-related topics:
- Register globals
- error reporting
- code exposure
