Security on XAMPP version: 1.7.2

Does this picture shows that my apache configuration is secure from people using it as a proxy server?

this picture shows that minimum secure is done. It doesn't secure your php scripts.
it's suggested NOT to use XAMPP for real server, just for developement.

Can you recommend a site where I can find out more about how to secure my php scripts.

Thanks.

don't be afraid ;) a lot to read I think its important to know and most parts can be excluded by validating every input (user, header, url)
