    I have a script that logins to a website with an email address and password i encoded with "urlencode"

    Basically curls
    use postfields to enter in the credentials etc

    Then i have it grab some content and posting it on the website with an explode.

    How secure is this and urlencode?
    Can someone manage to call arrays or something like that from outside of the script. Is this even possible?
    Should i be using any sort of cookies with curl?

    I was reading up on

    curl_setopt($curl_handle, CURLOPT_COOKIEJAR, );
    curl_setopt($curl_handle, CURLOPT_COOKIEFILE, );

    etc but wasnt sure if that'll be useful.

    Any tips, suggestions or anything in general i can do to make this somewhat more secure
