Is it possible to XSS with htmlentities enabled?


Recommended Posts


 $postcontent = protection($postcontent); 


That being how the content is protected. The function is:


 function protection($content){

$content = htmlentities($content);

$content = mysql_real_escape_string($content);

return $content;




Anything I should do to protection() to make it more secure?

that was one point, why I asked the OP to be more specific. There might be more trouble. But since you are not willing to provide any information and seem to think this is a quiz show....do not expect any answers. You're on your own.
