I don't know why but Ive always thought there should exist a PHP  
security consortium of some kind which "approves" of e-commerce  
software (even open source) or a document that gives an outline on  
what should and should not be contained within an e-commerce  
application.

This is usually the first stop of mine when anyone recommends a new  
product ...

http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&q=phpay+site% 
3Asecurityfocus.com&btnG=Search
http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&q=zencart+site% 
3Asecurityfocus.com&btnG=Search
http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&q=oscommerce+site% 
3Asecurityfocus.com&btnG=Search
http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&q=php+shopping+cart+site% 
3Asecurityfocus.com&btnG=Search

There should be some type of risk factor algorithm for these products.
