Most of you probably read Engadget, the most popular blog on the web. This morning I found a couple of holes in the blog CMS that they use and decided to exploit them while most people in the US were on vacation for a few days.

The CMS allows wildcard sub domains and doesn’t validate the input in any way so you can set up your own pages on Engadget about anything you like. Type some stuff in the form below and have fun!

Sub Domain

Page Name

Feed readers might need to click here to see the form.

Here are some fun ones I made up:

We hate the iPhone

Matt Cutts vs Britney

Kevin Rose loves del.icio.us

The lesson behind this post is to always validate your inputs.
