Hi all!
I need you're help!

For my C.S. Bachelor's Degree I need to write about 5 vulnerabilities in PHP (for every vulnerability I need 2 codes: first for testing vulnerability and second is the solution for that vulnerability).
I've searched in the Security Resources here, and on Google but I didn't find too much.

I hope you will help me, because you know more than me! I know PHP, but when it comes to security, always is room for better.

Excuse my English, is not my native language.

Thank you and a Happy New Year!

Vulnerabilities in PHP itself, or in PHP code?

If you look around in this section, you will see several topics of what can be done wrong. Sorry, not going to just give answers as you said this is for a requirement education, and I'm not trying to be mean, but if you are getting a degree in C.S. you should be able to find and develop your own answers to something like this.(and if you took any type of class on programming PHP, and they were not already discussed, I'd be concerned about your instructor(s))

This thread depresses me.

Have you seen the PHP Manual?

This is why to a lot of real programmers, a degree less than 5 years old (or older without actual work experience) doesn't mean much. Every time I pay my student loan payments, I shake my head as not one programming job I have had in the past 10 years, did the degree even make a difference, it came down to what I could show them I could do. I'm just paying for the enjoyment of the college experience (and well the laptop that I sold off about 8 years ago)

When I went for my degree, I met a lady who was very disappointed that in a 2 year programmer, she wouldn't learn everything she would ever need to know about programming. At first, I thought she was pulling my leg. She wasn't. Next day, she wasn't in the 3 classes I had with her, never saw her again. (luckily, this was the first semester of the program)
