while it is true that daily exploits against apps in PHP are posted to 
bugtraq there are perhaps 4 or 5 fundamental exploits against PHP 
itself. That's not to say that PHP hasn't made some defaults that 
weren't the most secure choice but you had the option to override it. 
The latest in PHP does away with magic quoting entirely.
don't take my word on this check the CVE list.
