As an application security tester I've tested loads of different apps running all manner of languages and frameworks.

The most critical issues I've come across have all been in PHP applications. In this talk I will explore why this might be.

What are the common issues I see? Is PHP inherently less secure than other languages? Can we fix it? Does it even need fixing?
