Im sending some info from a flash-file to a small PHP-script, both a larger string as POST and a small string as GET. My question is if a user through his browser or somewhere on his computer are able to see the url of the PHP-script, which by the way has another hostname, than the page from where its send from.
In that case is there a way to make sure that only POST or GET from a particular domain can send to the PHP-script.

$_POST will never detected unless you set that using the session ie $_SESSION['val'] - $_POST['val'] and that session gets hacked.

Anyone half-competent with a network sniffer or any one of a number of other tools for debugging HTTP traffic would be able to see the POST and the GET if they decided to look for it.

If you want to limit the addresses that can send a POST or GET to your script you would need to lock that down at the server with some sort of IP or Domain restriction or at a firewall in a similar manner.

Im not sure what is absolutely correct here, but I understand that it take some skills to detect.
