allow_url_fopen always a security risk or only when you let others to insert URL?
like when you want to set video stream links from your another server, and the only way to add new URL is from your Admin area, and the only person who have access that area is you.
so have we any security risk in this situation?
For those who want to answer: please keep in mind that i have read about hundreds of blog post and questions about
allow_url_fopen, and everyone keep saying that use
cURL instead; i know what is the
cURL and i know how to use that, and it's not the exactly same thing so forget that.
i don't ask about alternatives, i just want to know the answer of my own question.
