|Other Ways To Secure A Portal PHP by uvalued(m): 6:13pm On Jan 11|
greetings to you all.
we have been designing a departmental portal for a small school using php mysql
now on the issue of security.. we were able to do the following
1. made sure we used pdo
2. used preg_replace to replace any text/number from textbox
but with the rapid increase in security threat, i felt i need to inquire from gurus to suggest how to protect the database and the portal.
hopefully i want to learn backtrack to subject the portal to test for holes etc. untill then please kindly suggest other means of securing the portal.

uvalued:That's an hack. Preg replacing this things would harm you.. How many different use cases for preventing xss and sql injection is your fancy regex going to take into consideration?
Sql injection ? Use prepared statements.
Xss ? Use the html_entities function
