Thread subject: Security Override :: Not sure what I'm doing wrong in programming 1

Posted by apex123 on 01/17/2014 08:44:36

HI, I have completed a number of this type of challenge on other websites, but this one doesn't seem to be working the same. I can't seem to get the entire source code, I only have like half of it (and not the half that I need either). I'm using php curl, can anyone offer any advice?

Edit: I can't view any part that would be in the body tags! WTF?!?!?!?

This makes no sense at all. If I set my $url variable to
$url ="";

and echo the output I get the full source code, the same that I would if I opened up firebug while on the page. However, as soon as I change the variable to
$url ="";

$url ="";

the output ends at the first body tag. What is going on?

Please, someone tell me WTF is wrong with this:

    $url = "";
    $cookies = "PHPSESSID=xxx;fusion_user=xxx";
    $ch = curl_init();

    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $url);
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_COOKIE, $cookies);
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);

    $output = curl_exec($ch);
    echo $output;

This should echo all of the source code for the page, but instead it only echoes to the opening body tag. Why though? It doesn't make sense :(

Look at those pages when your logged in and when your logged out. Its your cookies.
Can be accessed without a log in
$url ="";

$url ="";

$url =""1/index.php;

Thanks for the reply Merlin. but It's not my cookies lol. I replaced them with 'xxx' when I copied and pasted the code into my previous post.

Well, I solved it. In case anyone is interested, I had to add
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HEADER, 0);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, 0);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYHOST, 0);

to my code. Thanks for all your help lol!
