Do you know what is this string for

Do you know what is this string for

Do you know what is this string for


I have found somebody tried to do something on my ASP web site by inserting
Result: chosen nickname "abcd"; sent;
in the web address. (where "abcd" may vary, perhaps is a username)
I have found a lot similar strings in Google.
Do you know what is that and how to avoid possible harm on my site?

RE: Do you know what is this string for

Sql injection, dictionary attacks etc. etc.

Avoiding harm?

Always, always, ALWAYS "sanitise" any user input before presenting it in a database query.


Indifference will be the downfall of mankind, but who cares?
Time flies like an arrow, however, fruit flies like a banana.

What should I do to sanitise any user input?
