La Presse’s tech freelancer Nicolas Ritoux … err… |\|içø145 ®1†0úX … has exposed some security flaws in government websites, a story that got him good placement in today’s paper.
For obvious reasons, he doesn’t go into too much detail about the pages or vulnerabilities involved, but he mentions SQL injection, which is a serious problem for any website with a database backend.
The fact that many government-run websites are vulnerable is hardly surprising. I see plenty of examples of horrible web programming every day.
“|\|içø145 ®1†0úX”… I don’t get the joke. Is it bad ? Should I be mad at you ? :)
Ah… ok… sorry I just got it. That’s my HACKER NAME ! Pfffouuu… I’m smart but I’m slow. :)
