Your reply fields allow HTML tag posting

(OP)
If I reply to a question in your forum system, if I type actual HTML coding into my questions and reply's, the tagging is parsed by the Web Server. This creates some security concerns. An Example, My Website is a WWW.HawleyFamily.Net

RE: Your reply fields allow HTML tag posting

Yikes! Sorry all, just wanted to try this. Not only a security concern but users can also hoark up a set of messages by placing "unesseccary" html code into their text.

RE: Your reply fields allow HTML tag posting

(OP)
It could be a security hole, if they enbedded SQL calls. could they not do destructive things to your SQL database. Making alterationst o the master db, or other sql necessary objects. Just a question..

RE: Your reply fields allow HTML tag posting

That is really cool!!!! Unfortunately, not something that we can have here, though... Looks like I'll have to check the messages for code. Thank you for bringing this to my attention

RE: Your reply fields allow HTML tag posting

‹A HREF="Http://WWW.HawleyFamily.Net/"›WWW.HawleyFamily.Net‹/A›

RE: Your reply fields allow HTML tag posting

This is a ‹STRONG›TEST‹/STRONG›

RE: Your reply fields allow HTML tag posting

I tried adding it in this time and it didn't work. Have you already patched it? It also said that my handle was Warcorp! Kinda of odd....

RE: Your reply fields allow HTML tag posting

Okay for some reason it has me as Warcorp now as my Handle. I just replied to a message in the thread and now when I submit things I am listed as Warcorp and it shows up on the top as saying Warcorp's Threadminder. I am going to try logging in again to see if this can fix it. (PK)

RE: Your reply fields allow HTML tag posting

Ok it should have me back as PK again but it was strange that it had switched me to Warcorp. You might want to look into this a little because it could be scary if people could pose as others without any effort.

RE: Your reply fields allow HTML tag posting

We're on it, thanks.

RE: Your reply fields allow HTML tag posting

I deleted that section of the page with the extra text box....It was the handle switch as it was tied to Warcorp's handle....
