CW: The SQL injection vulnerability isn't important because our code is proprietary so hackers won't find it.

    @djlazz3 i still remember the day I learned what sql injection was an realized that our site was wide open.

    One very intense and stressful hour later it was secured.

    Reminds me of what the former Minister of Justice of Spain, Rafael Catalá, said last year when it was (easily) found out that the groupware system they created basically for managing cases between lawyers and judges didn't check for unauthorized access when you incremented or decremented the case id in the URL, so lawyers could access data for any case they wanted.

    When confronted with it, he said that “accessing unauthorized data is illegal anyway, so the system is perfectly secure.”

    He actually and unironically used the words “perfectly secure” to describe it.
