Lucas found an XSS in a script I made a long time ago. Really appreciate it as those old pieces of code can be targets!

I coded it over a lunch hour in 2010 but I should have known better. Never trust user inputs! I fixed up the code myself and I appreciate Luke's help.

    Twitter ole_morten Ole Amundsen from Paladin Software:
Luke found some XSS vulnerabilities and reported them. We reached out and he is a polite and respectful, clearly describing the problem. And we fixed it. We are not happy about any security holes, but when they are there I am very happy that great people with integrity finds it and not those that want to cause sufferings. Thanks Luke!
