In which Karlski encounters a script kiddy [May. 3rd, 2008|02:20 pm]
So most of you know I spend most of my internet time hanging around the Cracked.com, formerly PWOT forums. Well today we noticed something odd happening; two or three of the more quiet and staid members of the fora suddenly posted, and I quote, "LOL NIGGERS" several times. Forum admin David Wong private messaged one of them and got a reply back telling him to look at someone else's profile and it would make sense.

The profile in question had html tags in the about me section that meant that the person whose profile it was got his cookies overwritten by those of the person looking at the profile. Basically it meant that this person could log in as David Wong. Which he proceeded to do and promptly went on a truly retarded rampage, mostly consisting of changing people's usernames to zlolzzzzZZZZZZZZQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQZZZzz and sadssadsadsasdasdasdasdasdasdasdasdasdasdasdasd.

Clearly we were dealing with a hacker on a level never before seen.

As of about four hours ago the forums have been shut down and replaced by a maintenance page. Let this be a lesson to you: be careful where you allow html tags in your webpages or douchebags will cause trouble.

Heh. Wong should take note of the awesome new security at SA. Over there we now have password requirements that are stricter and more annoying than the ones found on your average internet banking site. It's great, my password is now so complicated not even I can remember it!

Fucking Lowtax.
