hi everyone,

i'd just like to ask for comments re the current issue about
security vulnerability of php. CERT has released an advisory
regarding this. i personally think that the developer still has
the control in making his php code secure. but how do you
think will this news affect php as one of the most popular
choice for web developers?

here's the article:

By Robert Lemos Staff Writer, CNET News.com February 27, 2002, 5:40 PM

A flaw in a common open-source scripting language, PHP, could allow
attackers to crash an Apache Web site or compromise a server.

hope some can comment on this. thanks.
