    Billing software security

    Hi all,

    There are a lot of billing software out there that are using php or perl with mysql backend such as perlbill, modernbill, etc. I'm a little uncomfortable having client's information online using mysql database. What would be the best way on doing this. Do you think having mysql database offsite on a secure networks ? But if you do that, can't you sniff the packet between the two site and still able to steal informations ?

    Put your billing software / database on its on server, firewall it with either ipchains or a firewall appliance and do not allow external connections to mysql. Simple.
