Since we've been hacked ourselves, ATS has a no-tolerance point of view about hacking. (sorry) We will not tolerate discussions of hacking.
The only way to prevent a computer from being hacking is to disconnect it from the Internet.
Short of that, more solid security can be obtained with an application server that maintains session state of the user (confirms user authority, at
the server level, before serving each page). PHP can be used in this way, but talented hackers can forcefeed PHP database queries to spoof session
security. Cold Fusion is the next more reliable choice, not because is better, but because there are fewer CF developers, thus, a smaller universe of
hackers that care to attack Cold Fusion sites.
Feel free to discuss system security, not hacking concepts.
