PHP is inherently insecure
A lot of people do not believe that PHP (the web-based programming language) is inherently insecure. Yes it is!

I've had a conversation with a co-worker a while back in which he told me, "Oh, no. It is secure." Umm... No. It is not.

PHP trusts every input you pass through it. This includes global variables or URL parameters. It does not automatically escape code or even knows to check for escapes. It will allow you to display direct locations to files or resources on your site. These are dangerous and could lead to MySQL injections and worse. 

So, when someone tells you that PHP is secure by default, you'll know they have no idea what they're talking about.

Bash it upside the head!
 Trying to write a script here. I'm a bit conflicted. It's not operating the way I want:

x=`du ./ -h --max-depth=1`

exec 3<&0
exec 0<"$x"

while read -r line
        #echo "[$line]"
        z=`echo "[$line]" | awk '{print $1}'`
        if [[ z < 1 ]]; then
                echo "$z is Smaller than 1"
        elif [[ z > 1 ]]; then
                echo "$z is Bigger than 1"

exec 0<&3

Essentially, I'm just trying to read each line created by the DU command and use the first value as a point of reference. I'm assuming the exec isn't used correct when trying to reset the stdin for the use of the "read -r line" portion of this while. In Bash, this is the only instruction I believe works when reading line by line. I'd rather use a FOR loop without using IFS, but I may not have a choice in the matter. What a pain!
