Attacked Twice

By Susam Pal on 25 May 2006 has a security loophole.

The vulnerability was reported to the administrator of the website in the first week of April 2006 but no action was taken. Then I released a security advisory describing the issue on 16 April 2006. The security hole is an SQL injection vulnerability present in the following URL: This URL allows an attacker to probe their database and drop tables.

It is said that one should never assume a website to be too insignificant to get the attention of attackers. An attack of this kind is not a matter of whether it will happen but when it will happen. was attacked twice today but the website recovered both the times. Perhaps the administrator recovered the dropped tables from a backup. However, I am not sure if the administrator is aware of the fact that the tables are being dropped by attackers.
