aspWebLinks Hack prevention

how to fix aspWEbLinks which already been hacked?

One of my clients website are using aspWebLinks 2.0 for the exchange link program. and i just got a report that someone can hack in to their link exchange site. Apparently how they do it its because there is a security hole in aspWeblinks script which make other people can use Remote SQL Injection to change the Admin Password.

For you guys who get hacked on your aspWebLinks code, you can use some prevention by checking the referrer site to that link.asp page. If the referrer site is not your domain, then just reject or redirect it to the other page.

If you are using asp , here’s some code to do that:

If(action=”modifyconfigprocess”) and
(ref<>“theURLWhichCallYourmodifyprocess”) then
Response.Redirect “otherpages”
end if

RTA Engineering scholarships for rural and regional students

Twenty people in rural and regional NSW will have the chance of winning a scholarship fully funded by the RTA to study engineering at UTS next year.

Roads Minister Eric Roozendaal said the RTA had committed over $1 million dollars to the scholarships.

“These scholarships are about encouraging more young people to enter the engineering profession.

“They will also help to address the current shortage of civil engineers, which is particularly acute in regional areas.

“The scholarships, worth $50,000 each, will cover the full cost of a Bachelor of Engineering and Diploma in Engineering Practice at UTS.

“Scholarship holders will undertake their industry placements with the RTA and will be encouraged to do the work in a regional centre or rural area – in their home district if they choose,” Mr Roozendaal said.

The scholarships will be offered for two majors, Civil and Civil and Environmental.

UTS Dean of Engineering Professor Archie Johnston said the initiative had “in one go” significantly increased the number of cooperative scholarship places the Faculty of Engineering could offer for next year.

“UTS has a long-standing relationship with the RTA as an industry partner – the RTA and Railcorp NSW are the two biggest employers of UTS engineering graduates,” Professor Johnston said.

“The Authority should be congratulated for making such a positive decision in investing in engineering education – it addresses a skills shortage issue in a way that will deliver practical results for regional communities.”

If any robber catches you and you are forced by the robber to withdraw money from an ATM machine, you can notify the police so smartly by Entering your Pin Number in reverse. For example if your pin number is 1234 then you would put in 4321. The ATM recognizes that your pin number is backwards from the ATM card youplaced in the machine. The machine will still give you the money you requested, but unknown to the robber, the police will be immediately dispatched to help you. This information was recently broadcasted on TV and it states that itisseldom used because people don't know it exists. If you deem fit, please pass this along to everyone possible before they.......... !!!!

Microsoft Affiliate Programs

Seems like Microsoft has no choice but to toe the line when it comes to promoting their product the Google way, Google has been actively promoting their product with the collaboration of bloggers under the Adsense program, rewarding bloggers USD1 for every product downloaded.

Nobody knows how successful is the adsense affiliate program is in converting new user towards Google’s product, and pretty much like Google, Microsoft is rewarding bloggers too if they are willing to promote Microsoft’s product, currently it is made available for US customers only.

How to access gmail when it is blocked at work or school ...

My friend Deva asked me if there was a quick way to get around the firewall that keeps him from being able to access his Gmail at work. I was surprised at how easy it is.I don’t understand why Gmail gets blocked at work. I think it is much better that people are having their personal conversations ,instead of representing the company with every list of jokes, funny images, or comical videos they forward.But enough of my diatribe against poor policies in the workplace. You can access Gmail using a different URL! They usually only block some of the web addresses.

Use different web addresses

How To Access Blocked Web Sites

Proxy websites allows us to bypass our current ISP’s IP and connect to targeted website with a different IP; thus hiding our actual origin from detectable. Internet users use proxy websites for various reasons, some to access websites potentially blocked by their colleges or workplace, some use it to test their scripts. I frequently used them to test geo-location ads or to check if DNS are properly propagated when I adjust their settings.

I’ve decided to bring this entry back from archive to front page after receiving tones of emails asking for alternative proxies. Instead of the previous 2 proxy websites, here’s my personal collection on proxy websites. Full list after jump.

90+ Proxy Websites To Access Blocked Websites


Note that not all of them are working perfectly; some of these websites could be offline too. I’m not encouraging you to use this to bypass sites that you are banned from surfing in colleges, work place, etc. Use them with cautions make sure you know what you are doing. I shall not be responsible for any damages or rules and regulation you violate from using these proxies.
