I just received three consecutive visits from the same individual, they are as follows:

1st. test

2nd. Please login with valid credenitals (this was misspelled in the original visit, and not my typo)

Password

Login

I receive 100's of visits a month and NEVER received a request for this information

HA, I just posted the same thing. I thought my WM had been corrupted. So someone is doing a buffer overflow attack in the visit comment field, or something like that?

 

Same here. Not good! NOT GOOD at ALL!!!

EDIT:

This would, instead, appear to be a rare glitch. I just opened a goodly number of Waymarks at random, from randomly chosen categories, all without issue.

We did some investigation and it turns out there is no need to be concerned. We have a group doing some penetration testing of our sites and one of them strayed outside of the designated test environment.

 

HA HA HA now that is the funniest thing I've heard all day. Bad pages due to pen testing gone wrong - can't wait to tell our cyber security prof about that tomorrow! I will keep an eye on my one (known) affected page and see when it gets fixed.

One of my waymarks, WM170C0, just published the other day, appears to be "corrupt" for lack of a better word. I can edit it, but when I try to view it I get.... well, see for yourself. Can an admin take a look and see what's up with that? 

THANKS

Same thing happens when I try to review an edited waymark. The system will not allow me to view the waymark in question to approve/decline the review edits. So I am unable to clear it from my review queue. Hope this gets fixed soon.

That is interesting, this is the same message I got on a visit to a bird watching location on 11/15/2022

 White Lake Basin Biodiversity Ranch - Willowbrook, British Columbia

 

Also, when I tried to open "Bird Watching - Wynnwood Park Trails, The Colony, TX" to view, I got this same message:

You have to edit your waymark and delete variables contents you did not fill.

When you visit a waymark, you can fill empty variables, so they add malicious code inside these empty variables.

If you fill all variables, it can not happened :grin:

I have 3 Waymarks requiring approval of edits... I cant seem to access the Waymarks/site to approve the edits.

Bear and Ragged, I see  my waymark is on your list. White Lake Basin Biodiversity Ranch - Willowbrook, British Columbia

It looks fine, and I am able to edit. 

As I mentioned before, this is a bird watching location waymark that has the three visits by bugcrowd2022_36

I will try to delete the visits. 

Just wondering, why do you need to edit my waymark?

I dont need to edit the Waymark, it needs the edits to be approved by an officer... which I can't as the site wont let me!

Am I understanding you correctly, that someone had put an edit request? (for changes)

 If this is correct, will you email me the edit request?

If this is not the case, can you explain it again.

Emailed.

 

Yes, thank you for the reminder. I recall now. I was not aware that if I edit an approved waymark, it requires additional approval. 

 

Oh, this is interesting. I have been editing approved waymarks for about three years now removing the photobucket images that are now busted and some spelling errors.

 

Do you suppose that every edit requires additional approval? This is the first time I have heard of this, no one has ever contacted me about the edits. I have done thousands already.

 

As an added note, perhaps it is more to do with the bugcrowd2022_36 visits in the bird watching location, and also I did notice that there was a visit in off leash dog parks also by bugcrowd2022_36. It seem too coincidental that all problems are a result of these visits, in the same bird watching locations category.

As an officer I take a quick look and usually accept the edits.

 

I wonder if there is a % thing, that a small edit (spelling on a word or two) goes through without need to approve, but a higher % edit requires additional acceptance/approval?

 

Wonder if there is a % what it is?!

Strange - I didn't do any edits on the waymark mentioned above. Perhaps the pentesting issue again? Don't know if the user doing the edits has more rights than the usual officer, but on the categories I'm officer in I also can't see the decline message when wayfrog declined a waymark - perhaps the same happens here for the edited waymarks.

 

BTW: I'm sure there was an edit, since the parking coordinates changed automagically from east to west without the need of an approval - which they usually do, when you edit a waymark in the north-eastern hemisphere ...

When I log in to Waymarking I see the yellow marker as if there are some waymarks waiting to be reviewed. But I can't see them....It wasn't until I got a new waymark and finished reviewing it I was allowed to see a list of old waymark waiting to be publihed. Probably some resubmitted waymarks. the problem is I can't get access to them. When I click the link I don't get access to anything else than a very strange website. Picture 2 Have never ever experienced thar before. see pics. What to do?

This is definitely not the case. I opened two of my older WMs (one in one of my categories, one in a different category), that already have some visits, and made several changes to them. And I didn't receive any approval notes and saw the changes in another browser window (without being logged on) instantly. I assume, that if user X suggests an edit of a WM of user Y, one of the officers has to approve such an edit request.

Maybe every edit request for another WMer's WM has to be approved by an officer, but if one WMer edits his/her own WM, only "larger" edits need an approval. I just wonder, what a "larger" edit might be. It's definitely not the change of the coordinates, because I have corrected the East-West-Bug many times and never had to wait for an approval. It's also not changing the title as I have corrected some typos there also without delay. And I have also added a local translation to some of my approved WMs lateron, so a change of the long description is also not starting an approval process.

 

And of course, if an officer decides to edit a WM in his/her category, there is also no approval process neccessary.

You have to edit your waymark and delete variable content with malicious code

 

AHA I have looked right past that. For those who are as dense as me - in my case it was in the "nearby geocaches" box. Just delete all of that and your WM will be good again.

I was on my attacked waymark, I managed to remove the visit of "bugcrowd2022_36", then I edited my waymark and I deleted in the unfilled variables the texts he had added. Now my waymark is clean. Merci Barb

I am still unable to remove the visit, for some reason two are now gone. The third seems blocked or something...

 

Can someone help me to remove this visit. Instructions.

 

I did check and there does not seem to be any corrupt text. The vortex one I did find the text, and removed it.

Maybe Keith could make it happen

 

Not necessary, just checked and it is now gone. As far as I know, I did nothing for this to happen.

Regardless,  I'm happy. :rolleyes:

 

Thanks for all that responded to this topic. Hopefully the remaining waymarks will get resolved.

As an officer I edited the page to remove the visits. :)

 

Still have the page sitting to have the edits approved though. :(

And This One, which I reported Thursday evening, is STILL BUSTED!!!

Are you guys EVER going to clean up your mess?

Mebbe we need the Wayfroggie to remind them that they're NOT DONE yet!!

Keith

 

The one above is STILL BUSTED Today, as is this new one:

https://www.Waymarking.com/cat/waymark_edit_review.aspx?f=1&guid=1b6f9e3a-93cb-421e-93d7-eb75b75337ae&gid=3

 

OOPS - 'S OK, I got it fixed, though the original information is now lost.

 

At present it appears that the "friendly" hackers could be a worse threat than any "UNfriendly" hackers.
