Someone asked me "if I forget to close my html tags </> will people hack me? "

Geeks what do you suggest? 😁

    I'd say if you forget to close your HTML tags, it's more likely that your page won't render properly.

    I suggest being honest and kind, because ignorance is not inherently a sin.

    @Yves You could say that the W3 standards group will turn up in the night and confiscate their code.... ;)

    @Zaphod65 Agreed, being kind is the better option, but we can still speculate about amusing responses that are slightly piss taking....

    @Yves tell him that leaving tags open in the easiest way to get hacked, no matter how much security he puts in after that. He won't leave a tag open for a while, at least. By the time he realizes that the boogie man isn't real, he would have gotten used to closing his tags properly anyway.

    Leaving tags open has much worse issues than just the website getting hacked - it's well known that in Area 51, the NSA uses open tags to insert anal probes. Yesterday, you were Einstein, and then you wake up as Kim Kardashian. You have been warned!

    It's more of a signal of an idiot than a vulnerability. But there are probably a few if they can forget that

    If he closed the <please don't hack me> tag he'll be safe.
