Just an example on why it is important to filter user input fields

Print Track
Microsoft Dynamics. I do not have any details, but somewhere in an "information text" input field, there was a space to much.

Took down the entire financial system for a big car retailer in Sweden for several days. They were examining servers, running processes, patches... I do not know how they found it, but considering what it turned out to be, it was extremely frustrating.

Our Navision is of course customized to a degree, but I have no details about that either.

Take heed, filter input. Everywhere.

Yes indeed,

I started on a Standards that will be deeply interconnected to our Functions and examples once we have documented Fusion Dynamics, Defender.

PHP-Fusion Coding Standards

The current list reflects some old Standards everyone used to follow but something we actually never had Documented and some that were mixed with our Infusion Standards and some is how Nick always did.

Beyond all that, this is a huge mix of how Drupal, WP, Codeigniter & Pear have their Standards and the Standard that have been most closely related to how we have always done things from the respective lists mentioned.

Mind you WIP. It will all be finalized when the rest is up for documentation.
