PHP security

One of the problems I've run into while writing up some of my little PHP web scripts is how to make them reasonably secure. Everybody talks about how code need to be made secure, but so far I've found it difficult to find actual examples or guides on just how to write secure code. Maybe it's just the non-programmer in me that has a hard time with this.

So I was somewhat pleased to hear about the formation of the PHP Security Consortium. Hopefully this will become a good resource for people like me (as well as more experienced coders).

Founded in January 2005, the PHP Security Consortium (PHPSC) is an international group of PHP experts dedicated to promoting secure programming practices within the PHP community. Members of the PHPSC seek to educate PHP developers about security through a variety of resources, including documentation, tools, and standards.
