Together with Marcel Pociot and our colleagues at Beyond Code and Spatie, I'm currently building Flare, a paid service which will be revealed at Laracon EU. Together with the service we'll release a package that will change the way you will work with Laravel. To stay in the loop subscribe to our mailinglist at

SQL injection via the user agent HTTP header

Link –

Over at the CloudFlare blog John Graham-Cumming wrote an interesting article on SQL injection attacks via http request headers.

SQL injection is a perennial favorite of attackers and can happen anywhere input controlled by an attacker is processed by a web application. It's easy to imagine how an attacker might manipulate a web form or a URI, but even HTTP request headers are vulnerable. Literally any input the web browser sends to a web application should be considered hostile.

Follow me on Twitter. I regularly tweet out programming tips, and what I myself have learned in ongoing projects.

Every two weeks I send out a newsletter containing lots of interesting stuff for the modern PHP developer.

Expect quick tips & tricks, interesting tutorials, opinions and packages. Because I work with Laravel every day there is an emphasis on that framework.

Rest assured that I will only use your email address to send you the newsletter and will not use it for any other purposes.
