Security to prevent hacks & injection

Thread began 7/15/2010 11:51 am by mustang_sally_85344510 | Last modified 7/16/2010 1:45 pm by mustang_sally_85344510 | 608 views | 1 replies


Security to prevent hacks & injection

I recently had a site hacked via the _notes folder that DW creates.
Is it really necessary to upload these folders?

Also, I am looking at other ways IN ADDITION to security assist to protect sites I build from injection etc.
Considering a web site built completely with DW and WA supersuite...

Will making the following php.ini change adversely effect performance?

allow_url_fopen = Off
display_errors = Off
display_startup_errors = Off
log_errors = On
error_reporting = E_ALL
error_log = /home/yourUserID/public_html/phperr.txt
expose_php = Off
magic_quotes_gpc = On
magic_quotes_sybase = Off
register_globals = Off

Also will the WA DA, SA etc still run properly if .htaccess is applied to all folders ?
