Security App of the Week: PHP Security Audit


PHP Security Audit

If your website uses PHP, hackers have a lot of ways in which they can breach it if you don’t configure it properly. If you want to make sure your site is properly secured, I recommend that you give PHP Security Audit a try.

PHP Security Audit is a library that’s designed to identify security issues in server configurations, functions and classes. If a vulnerability is detected, the application offers recommendations on how to fix it.

The application can be utilized to identify common exploits, and get recommendations for shared environment settings. It also contains a list of settings that need to be applied in case you want to keep your website under lockdown.

In order to use PHP Security Audit, all you need to do is add the library file to your server and run it. The security app can be leveraged to test a website both locally and online.
