The Weird and The Wonderful

   

The Weird and The Wonderful forum is a place to post Coding Horrors, Worst Practices, and the occasional flash of brilliance.

We all come across code that simply boggles the mind. Lazy kludges, embarrassing mistakes, horrid workarounds and developers just not quite getting it. And then somedays we come across - or write - the truly sublime.

Post your Best, your worst, and your most interesting. But please - no programming questions . This forum is purely for amusement and discussions on code snippets. All actual programming questions will be removed.

I get an email whenever there's an error on my webapps. We recently initiated a service to do Red-Siren testing; e.g., testing for any security issues.

Got an error message today.
Of most interest, and danged funny at that, is the unedited, verbatim "Error Message" from Microsoft's lovely .NET Framework ... (emphasis added)

URL: https : / / www.RedactedWebSite.com /SomeWebApp/ThatLoginPage.aspx?ReturnUrl=%2fSomeWebApp%2fDefault.aspx%3faction%3dppr&action=ppr%3CScript%20%3Ealert(%22HelloSIG%22)%3C/Script%3E
Error Date: [redacted]

Error Message: A potentially dangerous Request.QueryString value was
detected from the client (action="ppr<Script >alert("Hell..."

Albeit a little late (going on 7+ years of .NET programming...), thanks for the warning Microsoft!
