I think I've found the least-secure site in the known universe! No, really!

If you don't believe me, go to the Video-on-Demand section, and look! :clap

It took me about five seconds to '0wn' (if you will) the Video on Demand section. I've let the site admin know, but for now, there's a category called 'for the love of god', and it contains one video, with the title 'Please, put a password here or something... I mean, come on, really? I thought security like this died in 1997!'.

It's too easy to call hacking.

And so you thought you'd be a bright little cookie and post the details here?

Have a read of this (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Responsible_disclosure). While bragging that you found a vulnerability in someone's site may massage your ego a bit, you've potentially just caused one hell of a headache for the site admin, and depending on the vulnerability and who else is on that server, possibly some other services as well.

Next time, I suggest you try a little tact and resist the urge to brag.

Idiot.
Not only have you shown yourself to have no ethics, you blurt it all over a public forum.


A concerned person might have just emailed them.

72 hours in the sin-bin to think about it. How would you feel if somebody found your PC was vulnerable, destroyed it and all your data, then went bragging about it. It's actually a pretty serious matter...

I share the sentiments of the previous 3 posters.

Bad Ubergeek .... it's people like you that scare the shite out of people knowing that others are out there hacking into computers .... but at least you did let the site admin know ... just hoped they fixed the leak before you posted.
