If somone hacked a web site and uploade a PHP shell ... of course he will request it via


the web like http://site.com/phpshell.php


here i want to someting to check that phpshell contente ... if it finde a shell script ..


it's prevent it displaying via the web .. if itsn't a shell script .. it's allow for its request and display the file content ..

    Inspecting a file before it is executed shouldn't be difficult. The best approach is probably to use a custom Apache module configured to execute just before PHP (in your case) execution takes place. It would scan the target script and refuse to run if it detects something inappropriate.
