PHP 7.1.5 Released



本特性已自 PHP 5.3.0 起废弃并将自 PHP 5.4.0 起移除

  • 可移植性 编程时认为其打开或并闭都会影响到移植性。可以用 get_magic_quotes_gpc() 来检查是否打开,并据此编程。
  • 性能 由于并不是每一段被转义的数据都要插入数据库的,如果所有进入 PHP 的数据都被转义的话,那么会对程序的执行效率产生一定的影响。在运行时调用转义函数(如 addslashes())更有效率。 尽管 php.ini-dist 默认打开了这个选项,但是 php.ini-recommended 默认却关闭了它,主要是出于性能的考虑。
  • 不便 由于不是所有数据都需要转义,在不需要转义的地方看到转义的数据就很烦。比如说通过表单发送邮件,结果看到一大堆的 \'。针对这个问题,可以使用 stripslashes() 函数处理。

Another reason against it: security. You could be lulled in a feeling of false security if you have magic_quotes=On on a test server and Off on production server.

And another: readability of the code. If you want to be portable you need to resort to some weird solution, outlines on these pages (if (get_magic_quotes())...).

Let's hope magic_quotes soon goes to history together with safe_mode and similar "kind-of-security" (but in reality just a nuisance) inventions.

Additionally, addslashes() is not a cure-all against SQL injection attacks. You should use your database's dedicated escape function (such as mysql_escape_string) or better yet, use parameterised queries through mysqli->prepare().

This is what I use to handle magic quotes


if (get_magic_quotes_gpc()) {
strip_array($var) {
is_array($var)? array_map("strip_array", $var):stripslashes($var);

$_POST = strip_array($_POST);
$_SESSION = strip_array($_SESSION);
$_GET = strip_array($_GET);

It is also important to disable Magic Quotes while in development enivronment. For the reasons mentioned above, not everybody is using Magic Quotes.

An application that works fine with Magic Quotes enabled may have security problems (ie can be subject to SQL attacks) when distributed.

I find it useful to define a simple utility function for magic quotes so the application functions as expected regardless of whether magic_quotes_gpc is on:

function strip_magic_slashes($str)
    return get_magic_quotes_gpc() ? stripslashes($str) : $str;

Which can be annoying to add the first time you reference every $_GET /$_POST/$_COOKIE variable, but it prevents you from demanding your users to change their configurations.
