    What is this?


    Hello,
    I am trying to view this column in MySQL, but this is all that shows up:

    e%00%BD%B1z%10uS%AE%B5T%D4%D1P7%E0

    Of course, this varies as the rows go along, but I am wondering how it has been encrypted and how I can decrypt it.

    I will share it with whoever helps me

    Thanks.

    I think if it was your SQL code, you would already know what it was.

    The 6 worst sins of securityHow to (properly) access a MySQL database with PHP

    Why can’t I use certain words like "drop" as part of my Security Question answers?
    There are certain words used by hackers to try to gain access to systems and manipulate data; therefore, the following words are restricted: "select," "delete," "update," "insert," "drop" and "null".

    And while you were stress-testing, suddenly a bunch of encrypted strings fell out of the database?

    C'mon, we're not stupid. If you can't explain the context, we'll have to assume this is not your data.

    Also posted here so you know it's totally legit.

    I've got an idea what they might be though....
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper

    What is the problem if it is not my data?

    What about this thread?
    Hashing Algorithms - It is stickied at the top of the subforum.

    It is stickied and it is not his data. He did not even have permission to access the site!

    So why can't you just tell me how this is hashed?

    I've reported the thread. You've been stupid enough to boast about your "findings" all over the Internet, so expect to get feedback soon.
