International PHP Magazine:
IPM Poll Question Which One is Most Dangerous?
August 17, 2006 @ 14:12:41

The International PHP Magazine has posted the results from their latest poll, this time asking which one of their options is the most dangerous kind of problem an application can have.

Options included "remote code execution", "SQL injections", and "file system attacks". Topping the charts, and almost typing for first place are "remote code execution" and "SQL injection", with SQL edging out the remote code.

The majority believes that 'SQL Injection' is the most common PHP attack as it garnered 33.6% of the votes. The PHP attack 'Remote Code Execution' scored 30.9% of the votes. The options 'File system attacks' and 'Cross-site Scripting' bagged 10.9% and 8.2% respectively. Not many people seem to consider the existence of any other PHP attack as the option 'Others' polled a dismal 0.9%.

Their latest poll goes with a different subject, asking readers to vote on which of their options is the best way to speed up a site. Check it out and cast your vote today!

Builder.com.au:
LAMP lights way on open source security
March 07, 2006 @ 07:25:42

From Builder.co.au, there's this new article that talks about the LAMP software, how's it's "showing the way" to Open Source security.

The most popular open-source software is also the most free of bugs, according to the first results of a U.S. government-sponsored effort to help make such software as secure as possible.

The so-called LAMP stack of open-source software has a lower bug density--the number of bugs per thousand lines of code--than a baseline of 32 open-source projects analysed, Coverity, a maker of code analysis tools, announced Monday.

The results are a product of a Homeland Security effort (performed by Stanford University) for three years. They found that the LAMP combination contained about 0.434 bugs per 1,000 lines of code. Unfortunately, their results also showed, of those problems, PHP had the higest bug count of the four.

Ajax Magazine:
AJAX PHP is the most requested AJAX couple
November 15, 2005 @ 10:38:34

Over on our sister site, AjaxDeveloper.org today, there's a new post from Ajax Magazine (from the PHP Magazine folks) about the most popular pairing with Ajax - no big surprise that it's PHP!

After about 6 month of running this AJAX Blog I was wondering which couple is the most requested on the net. Not because this website is mainly about PHP related technologies because I was trying to cover all usage of AJAX with Ruby,python,.NET, J2EE ... but AJAX PHP was the most requested couple overall! surprising!

  • First of all there is more AJAX implementation with PHP
  • PHP is still the scripting language the more easy to use and learn
  • AJAX is also new, and it's more easy to learn with PHP compared to other languages
  • Enduser don't worry about the language used, but about what the service is offering.

They also note that while there is a popularity of PHP in the minds of Ajax developers, there also aren't any commerical apps written in it yet - partially because of the opinions that corporate professionals have of PHP...
