phan-taint-check-plugin is a Phan plugin meant to use static analysis to find certain types of security vulnerabilities in PHP code.
It can be used on any PHP project, and it has a couple of features specific to MediaWiki code.
This page is just a stub so far, for more information, see README.
Running on Wikimedia Jenkins
You can test any extension in Wikimedia version control by writing a comment
check experimental on a gerrit patch. The best way to add taint-check is requiring
mediawiki-phan-config >= 0.10.2, and ensuring that the phan CI job is installed for your repo.
If you already require mediawiki-phan-config >= 0.10.0, you should follow the instructions for running phan.
Otherwise, see the README for manual installation (this is discouraged, though).
The plugin has the same dependencies as mediawiki-phan-config. Namely:
- phan/phan (the version is pinned and constantly updated)
- PHP >= 7.2
- Optionally, php-ast (install instructions) will make it faster (it worths the pain of compiling/installing the extension!)
