Zen of Secured Shared Hosting, Back on Track ... Kinda
Well I have managed to plug the security hole, and I am currently working on refining the deployment by using the ability to disable functions in php …
Some 5244 approx functions over 23 a4 pages …
For the impatient you can grab a php script I have written to build the complete comma separated list from subversion here: http://svn.saiweb.co.uk/branches/zen_of_secured_shared_hosting/trunk/disable_functions_string.php
Please note this is a ‘paranoid’ list (some 354 functions!), you will need to for instance remove phpversion, ini_get and http_build_query from the list to get wordpress working.
Customize to your needs :-)
