    [quote user="joe.edwards"]So, has anybody tried directory traversal?[/quote] They append a .PDF at the end of the filename, so it's not a trivial case of that attack, you'd need to get a bit creative here.

  • Re: Build failed with 0 warnings and 0 errors

    This reminds me of a thing that once happened to me, but wasn't worth making a topic for it only: It says: The disk image was recorded successfully because an error occurred.

  • Re: Representative file

    [quote user="Zecc"]That's fixed formatting? I wish I had seen the original. [/quote] Trust me, you don't. I also just realized that it doesn't needs to include the aux.php file, but let's be sincere, that's like dumping sand on the beach, if a beach was made of horrible code. And reeks of copy-paste.
