There is a reason why I test sites
Recently I was at a pub and there was an advert for pub tokens displayed on the window. Seemed like a cute idea:
- Buy & donate tokens which can be spent (only) on beer.
Perfect for friends, family, remote hackers/developers & similar.
When I got home I checked out their site. Seemed simple and nice enough, with good coverage (in terms of local drinking establishments that would accept their tokens).
I decided to sign up, with the intention of gifting my sister with some delicious beer. Unfortunately that's where it all went wrong.
I tend to act the same on all new sites. Partly to amuse myself, partly to get a feel for how safe/secure/good the site is, I'll try to login with a few different values.
You know you're in trouble when you see responses like this:
SELECT * FROM cms_module_pubtokens_users where email = '"'' AND password =''"' LIMIT 1 Fatal error: Call to a member function FetchRow() on a non-object in /home/pubtokens/U79P18WQ/htdocs/includes/functions.php on line 291
Suffice it to say I sent them an email, then poked them on twitter, but to no avail.
In conclusion they don't get my money, and I couldn't recommend them to anybody else at this point either. As I'm not a customer at least I can rest easy knowing my details haven't been compromised at any point over the past few months.
