The GX Website Security plugin is a script designed to take on the burdon of dealing with certain common security problems in PHP scripts.

It is made to immediate, transparent security of varying types. Far, far too often you hear about scripts having some common vulnerability - people just aren't careful enough when writing scripts. This script is desiged to try to compensate for some of this carelessness.

It is a very usefull protection plugin developed and distributed under GPL by Gerd Xhonneux from xtc.

GXSecurity tries to defend against:

  • HTTP request floods
  • Script display vulnerabilities
  • General flood protection
  • IP banning via .htaccess
  • HTML source viewing/stealing
  • Block blacklisted IP addresses
  • Block visitors from user-defined countries
  • Detect URL cracks and injections

A website where GXSecurity is installed and wich was under fire from spammers and hackers were observed for a year.

This is the convincing result:
