Coding Pastebin Security

pasteLert *facepalm*


Sorry guys, I noticed that I haven’t been getting any pasteLert updates, and i just realised why (see above picture for my reaction).

Change line 4 in truncPastes.php from:

mysql_query(“truncate pastebin”);


mysql_query(“delete from pastebin”);



Truncate automatically resets the auto-incrementing IDs so that when the table was truncated pastes started from ID 0 again, which when checked against what the last ID sent to the user was obviously lower. Sorry for the headache, to fix it, apply the above then run:

update alerts set LastID = 0;


Mah bad,
