There are some links at the end of section 10 to more articles about security (or if you just search via google you'll find tons of articles!) smile

The link at the bottom of page 3 (section 9) links to a website that says the website is offline due to maintenance (been like that for a few days)


These are the links at the end of section 10 if you can't find it :

For a more in-depth discussion on this, and other security issues, these links are quite useful:

Language: HTML
<a href="http://www.nastysite.com"> A Nasty Site</a>

Public holidays are awesome for studying!smiling smiley
I have completed chapter 9 today.
@78125766Suzan My example didn't open correctly either, I discovered that this is because the strip tags function was not commented out from the php code. It appears as follows:

Language: PHP
//$first_name = htmlspecialchars($first_name); $first_name = strip_tags($first_name, "<B>"); //$first_name = htmlentities($first_name);

Comment out // the middle line, and it will render correctly.

Completed section 9.

The section was good, at least this is something that as a Web Developer I'll get to remember at all the times just to protect my work.

Completed this section. The site for the link is still under maintenance.

Section completed.

Noticed the same as Susan, I also spotted the Strip-line and commented it out. So glad for this section, was really starting to wonder about security...

I think I now also understand what happened in one of our computer labs where the IT students spend so much time! Will definitely investigate tomorrow! smile
