Hey Community,

I'm looking solution for Intrusion detecting (IDS) in Phalcon app. I did it in application:beforeHandleRequest event & check all superglobal variabl such as $REQUEST, $POST, $GET, $COOKIES for any bad codes or scripts, but i don't know if it is standard or not. please help me if there is an advanced solution for this.

hi, do u know about snort?

public function hackAction() {

    $ipAddress = $this->request->getClientAddress();
    $userAgent = $this->request->getUserAgent();
    $data = date('Y-m-d G:i:s');

    $query_command = $_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'];
    $keyword =

    if ($query_command != $checking) {

         $logs = new Hack();
         $logs->ipAddress = $ipAddress;
         $logs->userAgent = $userAgent;
         $logs->data = $data;
         $logs->query = $query_command;

    if ($query_command != $checking) {

        //do some


yes, i know snort, php-ids and others. but my question is where is best place in phalcon to put IDS code to refine all intrusions?
