Sam Broadcaster Request Server Security Flaw!

SAM Broadcaster Request Server Security Flaw! Yes you read the title properly folks. It seems the built in webserver that handles listener requests in SAM Broadcaster has a security flaw in it.

SAM Broadcaster is already a dodgy enough program without adding stuff like this on top! I saw this post on the SAM Broadcaster forums last night….

Yes you are reading that post correctly. “I will need to check on that in SAM, that probably could present a security issue.”
