So if you use this and your own domain is ever compromised, it also compromises every client website you've ever worked on.
Please don't ever, ever use this.
This is a security risk, How difficult would it be fore someone to backwards engineer this to take over your sites. Also in many places this would not be legal.
Never do this. Ever.
This should have "Bad Idea" in really big, bright red, blinky letters.
These are the type of things you hope you never have to use.
thought this was a good-intentioned, but horrible idea until:
- You feel like being a bit of a dick.
- Change all the pictures to somethings else (offensive or not, its up to you).
I actually built one of these for our site at one point. We had an enormous number of people download and run the site from their own places; we ignored localhost, because we want people to learn. Quite an interesting experiment at the very least.
Edit: The script actually just posted to a little app I wrote that emailed us a quick notification with the location details of the site itself.
What asshole would use this?
And when the client notices the backdoor you'll never get a job again. Why would you wanna work that way? If you don't trust the client you shouldn't work for them in the first place
I don't understand how this works :(
It's essentially building a backdoor into the website.
Seems like a poor substitute for a contract.
