403 Forbidden Errors

If you receive 403 Forbidden errors after filling out a form on any page on J2O chances are that it is related to a strange problem being worked on where certain sequences of characters that appear in either post/get data cause the page to be forbidden.

So far, 2c’s followed by a space (see I can’t type it here or I will get a 403 error) causes a problem. Hopefully this will be resolved soon.

Interesting bug.

I had this earlier while trying to reply to a message. I don’t remember what it said, though.
Hmmm, so we can’t say anything like “CC_is a clan”.

This day is a bad day for CC! ;(

Hur hur. I think I was the first one to find that bug after trying to use ‘acc’ in my posts. :-D

Hahaha :P.

So, the forbidden string is “cc “?

Torkell on 8 Mar 2005 at 23:38

Okay, so the comment thing escapes html. There goes that idea.

(hint: you weren’t meant to see the ““)

It’s blocked in uppercase as well as lowercase, btw. (so cc_, cC_, Cc_ and CC_ are blocked (replace ‘_’ with ‘ ‘))

CC . I’m good. Look at me typing CC on J2O.

White Rabbit on 9 Mar 2005 at 17:36

Btw, the problem can be solved by using   in front of cc . :-)

CC

I typed it :D

I tried it…it DOES give me an error. ._______.;

ahahaha :D

They cheated. Their ‘CC’ doesn’t have an ASCII space after it.

White Rabbit on 11 Mar 2005 at 23:21

It’s not nice to play fair. :-P
