zikula error PHP 'magic_quotes_gpc' setting is ON, but should be OFF.

You should, however, replace it with an appropriate php.ini file. Contact your hosting provider for information on using php.ini to disable register_globals and magic_quotes_gpc
http://community.zikula.org/index.php?module=Wiki&tag=UpgradingZikula764


If the directive magic_quotes_sybase is ON it will completely override magic_quotes_gpc. So even when get_magic_quotes_gpc() returns TRUE neither double quotes, backslashes or NUL's will be escaped. Only single quotes will be escaped. In this case they'll look like: ''
http://www.php.net/manual/en/function.get-magic-quotes-gpc.php

http://www.php.net/manual/en/security.magicquotes.php
Warning

This feature has been DEPRECATED as of PHP 5.3.0. Relying on this feature is highly discouraged.

An example that sets the value of these directives to Off in php.ini. For additional details, read the manual section titled How to change configuration settings.

; Magic quotes
;

; Magic quotes for incoming GET/POST/Cookie data.
magic_quotes_gpc = Off

; Magic quotes for runtime-generated data, e.g. data from SQL, from exec(), etc.
magic_quotes_runtime = Off

; Use Sybase-style magic quotes (escape ' with '' instead of \').
magic_quotes_sybase = Off

http://www.php.net/manual/en/security.magicquotes.disabling.php

summary no solution on zikula help forums or anywhere else . and as this is on shared posting php.ini is not visible to the user .

Other Places to Go

reinstalling to the latest version of zikula seems to have solved the issue?(hopefully)

NO f** luck :(

Security analyser warnings

  • Configuration file 'config/config.php' is writeable, but should be read-only (644 or 444).
  • PHP 'magic_quotes_gpc' setting is ON, but should be OFF.

{if
$notices.security.magic_quotes_gpc or
$notices.security.register_globals or
$notices.security.config_php or
!$notices.security.temp_htaccess or
!$notices.security.useids or
!$notices.security.scactive or
(!$notices.security.useids and
$notices.security.scactive)}


http://code.zikula.org/core/changeset/232/

An example that sets the value of these directives to Off in php.ini. For additional details, read the manual section titled How to change configuration settings.

; Magic quotes
;

; Magic quotes for incoming GET/POST/Cookie data.
magic_quotes_gpc = Off

; Magic quotes for runtime-generated data, e.g. data from SQL, from exec(), etc.
magic_quotes_runtime = Off

; Use Sybase-style magic quotes (escape ' with '' instead of \').
magic_quotes_sybase = Off

If access to the server configuration is unavailable, use of .htaccess is also an option. For example:

php_flag magic_quotes_gpc Off


http://us.php.net/manual/en/security.magicquotes.disabling.php

http://www.siteground.com/tutorials/zikula/zikula_installation.htm

created a .htaccess files and uploaded it with
php_flag magic_quotes_gpc Off

this gives a error 500 Internal Server Error

you could probably create a second php.ini file inside your AutoTheme folder that would undo what you did in the first php.ini file.

Pligg CMS 1.0.4

When we first announced plans for the 1.0.4 version of Pligg we had no idea how much work would end up going into it. The original plan was to release some minor bug fixes and to lay some groundwork for a larger upgrade further down the road. As we worked on this version we came up with some new features, some admin panel usability improvements, and a large number of bug fixes. The end result is a very solid and enhanced version of Pligg that we are excited to release today.

You can Download Pligg CMS 1.0.4 from Pligg.com and view the SVN changelog on Sourceforge.net to see what has been updated since our last release.

Pligg Pro 10% Off Coupon

Fake software alert: Security essentials 2010

Security essentials 2010 is the latest fake security software to use the Microsoft name to spread malware instead of to help protect against it. Security essentials 2010 is a form of rogue security software that cybercriminals use to trick people into infecting their own computers.
This fake software will not protect you against malicious software. In fact, it also asks you for payment in order to “unlock the full version.” Once the cybercriminals get your payment information, they can use it to commit even more fraud.
Microsoft Security Essentials is free to download. There is no trial version. You can download the program, find out more information about how it works, and see screenshots or the real product at Microsoft.com/Security_Essentials.
Here’s a screenshot of the fake software:
For more information about this fake software, see the Microsoft Malware Protection Center blog.

The Rackspace Hosting E-commerce Event

Date: Thursday, April 8, 2010
Time: 4:30pm - 6:30pm
Place: Sambuca: 2120 McKinney Avenue, Dallas, Texas


Rackspace experts Gregg Stout and Grant Herbon will join Magento Senior Product Manager Tim Schulz to discuss E-commerce topics such as:


  • Actions you can take now to begin building a best-in-class E-comm platform
  • Understanding the diverse technologies required to support an exceptional selling experience
  • Drilling down into one key element of the E-comm infrastructure: the shopping cart

E-commerce for the Emerging Retailer

Magento will also discuss how to prepare for the next big shifts in online commerce. Why are new online retailers growing so quickly and how can established players effectively compete? Are yesterday's marketing channels becoming tomorrow's platforms? Topics include:

  • Mobile: Commerce on mobile devices is growing at an unprecedented rate. How should online retailers respond?
  • Social & Local: Why did Omniture® recently partner with Facebook? How are location-aware mobile apps like Foursquare & Gowalla influencing customers to discover products?
  • Measurement: Do online retailers need to embrace new Key Performance Indicators to measure their business, or will the same fundamentals apply?
  • Products & Platforms: What sort of solutions should online retailers look for in this time of change?
