Top Ten Security Vulnerabilities in PHP Code
Aug 04, 2008 @ 12:58:10

Rochak Chauhan has come up with a list of ten things, some security problems that could be lurking in your applications waiting to pop up at the worst time. Here's his list:

  • Unvalidated Parameters
  • Broken Access Control
  • Broken Account and Session Management
  • Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) Flaws
  • Buffer Overflows
  • Command Injection Flaws
  • Error Handling Problems
  • Insecure Use of Cryptography
  • Remote Administration Flaws
  • Web and Application Server Misconfiguration

Each item on the list has a bit of detail (and sometimes some code) to help point out the problem. Some of them even have references to external sources and packages to help you solve the problems.
