Test everything, trust no one.

Do not trust any security related answers you see on StackOverflow.com (SO) / Security.StackExchange.com (SE). Not from me, not from anyone. There are very smart people on SO/SE and there are excellent answers given, although the right answer is not always chosen.

I have been writing exploit code for a while. There is no perfect system, vulnerable code will always exist.

@Daniel Magliola The only one you are fooling with cargo-cult security is yourself.

@SilverlightFox Interesting, I was not aware of that weakness. Not surprising coming from Microsoft.

@Mints97 did you even try this? Sub-selct doesn't allow into outfile.

SSL was deprecated over a decade ago, I sure hope you aren't using SSL. TLSv1 or later is the only acceptable secure transport layer.

@Hoax that is a separate question. The OAuth flow is really useful.

@ThePhysicist and the answer was clearly provided. In order to restrict access, you need something you control.

@ThePhysicist ok, you still can't give the attacker the access_token, which means you can't send it to the desktop client, this must never happen. Crypto isn't magic, you can't hide in plain sight.

comment External cross domain include script
This is a security issue, and for any reasonably complex app there should be no less than 1,000 vulnerabilities that are more important than this one.
