"Internal Server Errors" on forum possible work-around.

Postby Joe Pecore » June 1st, 2009, 2:41 pm

If you are getting an "Internal Server Errors" when posting, check to see if you have the word "FROM" anywhere after the word "SELECT". If so, modify your post to avoid it and see if that works.

The server appears to be blocking those words in that order as this is a type of server attack known as SQL injection : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SQL_injection

This goes for MagicPedia articles also (since it's on the same server).

It's also an issue with any variations on SELECT, like SELECTed, or SELECTion.

And it doesn't matter how far apart the two words are, either.

After some work, we've cleaned out the problem.

So: if anyone has more problems like this, please let us know.

I'm still getting the error if the words are close together.
