SpikeSource Spike PHP Security Audit Tool

Outsmart Malicious Hackers

Spike is an Open Source tool based on the popular RATS C based auditing tool implemented for PHP.

The tool Spike basically does static analysis of php code for security exploits, PHP5 and call-time pass-by-reference are currently required, but a PHP4 version is coming out this week.

This tool is especially welcomed by Darknet as there aren’t many static analysis tools out there that are free, and there are very few tools for auditing PHP code..which as we all known tends to be coded quite insecurely at times (just look at phpBB and PhpNUKE).

You can find the latest version here:

    Thank you for the post, guys.

    BTW, the php 4 friendly version was released yesterday.

    No worries, we are always happy to support new projects.

    Especially those which will lead to more secure coding practises for everyone!

    Very interesting project :)

    You should also try Wapiti for blackbox testing. It’s a “web application vulnerability scanner” released under the GPL License.
