     Stop SQL Injections

				Here is a simple, yet effective, solution for avoiding SQL Injections.

Let's see a SQL Injection vulnerable sentence:
$r = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM s WHERE id = ".$_GET['id']."");

And the solution:
$r = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM s WHERE id = UNHEX('".bin2hex($_GET['id'])."')");

By converting the var in php, and reconverting it in the SQL sentence there's no chance to inject code. /
