I would become king of teh portal!


I've been refurbished and reissued, prepackaged and precooked, decontaminated and deloused, but I still smell, sound, look and feel like shit.

New to the video game forums?

If?

I'm sure there are hundreds of holes just waiting to be found in the site.

One example would be using a flash script to redirect the user to the website stealing their cookies, giving you access to their account. Don't go off and do this now, people. It's possible that Tom and Waid have uber admin accounts and they can edit anything at the click of a button. If they ended up watching one of those movies. Argg it'd be hellish.

Anyway... I wouldn't do anything but report to Tom and Waid about the security hole, so they could fix it. Defacement is for losers.

Eh, the thing I listed is quite possible unless there's already a safeguard against it set up. As I said before, no site is completely secure. PHP is vunerable to lots of exploits, and SQL is easily manipulated through forms.

Then again, I bet Tom and Waid have patched hundreds of security flaws in the site over the years.
