What happen when graffiti search was DOSS attacked

Nov 10, 2010 at 6:37 AM

I have review code search function of GraffitiCMS, this is a risk function when website was DOSS attacked.

Have good solution for this problem. Do you know search function of vBulletin? this is good idea.

I had solved, pls demo in here:

My solution:

  • Save search option into database
  • Save search results id into database
  • Clear history search after one day (config by plugin)
  • Restrict search results after 30 seconds

Any question? kindly let me know.
