RE: can a hackers convert DNS to path of database?
well yeah, b/c the dsn contains the path to the db. how would anyone have access to your dsn though? they aren't just sitting out in the open or anything, in fact i searched all over the place for mine and could not find them anywhere.<BR><BR>this is assuming your using system dsn's not file dsn's.<BR>file dsn's aren't as reliable and could be sitting out in the open for anyone's viewing<BR><BR>justin
A DNS entry? Or a DSN? <BR><BR>If you are talking about the DNS entry that maps your URL to the IP that your web server is hosting it on, no.<BR><BR>If your are talking about a DSN...Don't worry about it. They're stored in the registry, and if a hacker has gained remote registry access, you have much bigger problems than the fact that he can figure out the path to your DB.
