PHP Easter Egg

11 comments

Want to see an Easter Egg in PHP, then just add [?=PHPE9568F36-D428-11d2-A769-00AA001ACF42] onto any url that works in PHP, like say for example Threadwatch, or Matt Cutts Blog. Now curiously Jeremy has a different picture, things that make you go hmmm ....

strange

Can't seem to get it to do anything on my forum site that uses PHP

Doesn't work on my sites either...

...must be a version thing. (Ah well)

wonder if you can do it on

wonder if you can do it on Paypal too :-p

Can't requests like that be blocked?

Like in .htaccess or something, serve a 403 to any request for a page with that query string? (I don't know enough about it to know for sure and don't have time to test right now...)

.htaccess

Matthew -

Yes, you definitely can.

If you don't like the pics -

If you don't like the pics - here's a php logo...[?=PHPE9568F34-D428-11d2-A769-00AA001ACF42]

Eg: http://www.mattcutts.com/blog/?=PHPE9568F34-D428-11d2-A769-00AA001ACF42

:)

And another one

I've also seen different versions of this one.

I have a morse !

I get nothing on my server

But, that's because I've set my server to not identify php, so this is disabled also.

Found this in the libphp5.so file:

PHPE9568F36-D428-11d2-A769-00AA001ACF42
PHPE9568F34-D428-11d2-A769-00AA001ACF42
PHPE9568F35-D428-11d2-A769-00AA001ACF42

Only ones in there that return something. There are a couple more but they do not appear to do anything (without much investigating behind it).

And these in the info.h file:

#define PHP_LOGO_GUID "PHPE9568F34-D428-11d2-A769-00AA001ACF42"
#define PHP_EGG_LOGO_GUID "PHPE9568F36-D428-11d2-A769-00AA001ACF42"
#define ZEND_LOGO_GUID "PHPE9568F35-D428-11d2-A769-00AA001ACF42"

So that is about it.
