Taint is an extension, which is used for detecting XSS codes(tainted string). And also can be used to spot sql injection vulnerabilities, and shell inject, etc.

When taint is enabled, if you pass a tainted string (comes from $_GET, $_POST or $_COOKIE) to some functions, taint will warn you about that.

Пример #1 Taint()example

<?php
$a 
trim($_GET['a']);

$file_name '/tmp' .  $a;
$output    "Welcome, {$a} !!!";
$var       "output";
$sql       "Select *  from " $a;
$sql      .= "ooxx";

echo 
$output;

print $
$var;

include(
$file_name);

mysql_query($sql);
?>

Результатом выполнения данного примера будет что-то подобное:

 Warning: main() [function.echo]: Attempt to echo a string that might be tainted  Warning: main() [function.echo]: Attempt to print a string that might be tainted  Warning: include() [function.include]: File path contains data that might be tainted  Warning: mysql_query() [function.mysql-query]: SQL statement contains data that might be tainted
