2. Na'. It looks like a fake hack.
Where you plug a website's URL and it makes funny stuff happen to it (blow it up, make it read differently).

It just reflects the HTML hidden in the link.

11. It's not a "hack" at all.
It just reflects the HTML hidden in the link.

25. What an amateur mistake.
You always check your CGI input for this kind of monkey business. Always. ASP.NET might make that difficult. It's been forever since I coded any of it, but I remember it made a lot of simple stuff hard.

31. Yes, they now filter the zip
But it is an incomplete fix, one can just use another variable. Who did that page? Joe the Webguy?
