Did you know that several highly popular versions of PHP used in more than 85% of all PHP sites are unsupported by the PHP.net community?


HardenedPHP is a feature of CloudLinux OS that secures old and unsupported versions of PHP. In those old versions, including widely used 5.2, 5.3, and, as of September 14th, 2015 also 5.4, vulnerabilities, even if discovered, are not patched by the PHP.net community.

PHP represents more than 80% of all server side scripts. Because of this wide application usage PHP is consistently exploited by hackers, making sites vulnerable.

HardenedPHP keeps your customers and servers safe by patching all PHP versions against known vulnerabilities, even versions unsupported by the PHP.net community.

Over 100 vulnerabilities, of which many were critical, have been discovered for the unsupported versions of PHP and all have been patched by CloudLinux.

About 85% of all PHP sites use highly popular PHP versions – 5.2, 5.3, and 5.4. Yet, versions 5.2 & 5.3 and, as of 9/14/2015 also version 5.4, are unsupported by the PHP.net community.

Web developers write their scripts to accommodate for a particular PHP version, but just because a version becomes obsolete, companies are not able to update and change programs to accommodate for newer versions.

HardenedPHP patches old PHP versions so that you do not have to force your customers to re-write scripts written for an older PHP version or, even worse, risk breaking their sites.
