    Sorry for intruding off topic here, but I couldn&#039;t help but notice the kind of information you are passing through the URL.<BR>Specifically the price is a dangerous thing to have there.<BR>Although it is unlikely, someone may spot that and edit the variables. If they enter in a negative value, depending on the accounts software you use, you could end up refunding them cash and sending them the product gratis.<BR><BR>So unless that information is very well hidden and perhaps encrypted, or is for non-public use, I would consider changing the code.<BR>1 year down the line, when doing tax returns, your company may find such discrepancies and come knocking on your door looking for renumeration.<BR><BR>I may have gone way off the mark on this one, I&#039;m not saying that you don&#039;t have some super encryption thing going on and its not your code specifically, but its just a general warning to everyone.
