Humor: Worldwide SQL Protocol Advisory

The full disclosure mailing list is usually 95% junk but every once in awhile an amusing/informative post gets through. Today an amusing post came through regarding a 'Worldwide SQL Protocol Advisory'. That's not to say this post isn't junk, but I found it amusing :) Here's a peek

"II.   Problem description

The problem exists with the usage of the apostrophe character which
will now be reffered to as "'" or '\'' if using certain shells. The
' character is an omen to escape and has provided malicious hackers,
crackers, slackers and hijackers with an attack vector to thereafter
flood your email with useless advisories."

"IV.   Workaround

Develop a new character to replace the apostrophe"
