    Hello duddes and duddetes,

    I am trying to write a web security platform and I need some advices. I want to do it for educational purposes, I want to learn how to build and design it. I'm thinking of using PHP and make some kind of a web application that has tiny scripts (scan scripts, scripts for malware, scripts for web vulnerabilities -how can I build them?!- ). From this I want to build a system that allows the user to activate and deactivate functions.

    Do you have ideeas how can I do my project? What I can put there? Maybe open-source stuff that I can integrate? General advices?

    Forever grateful for your reply, thanks :-D

    Reference that IMO. It's deprecated now as they have stopped development of it, but it's open source and PHP, and back in the day it was incredibly powerful when it came to stopping SQLi, XSS, CSRF, etc.

    There's also ZB Block, Zend has a similarly functional script as well. These are all massive scripts, and what you're looking to do has a very large scope.

    Best of luck!
