    hello everyone.

    I need any of you to kindly explain about manipulating POST header.

    I am not a pro,so please be simple!

    I just know to view the POST headers using the Live http header firefoX addon.
    Can the manipulating of a POST header change the data being sent to the server?

    The easy and non-technical way is with FireFox and its addon tamperdata.

    You can change the header that you are sending from your computer but not a visitor's header data. The header data is sent by the browser or whatever is acting as browser, i.e. cURL or other.

    Hope that helps to clarify things slightly

    I've read some where about POST manipulation vulnerability.
    Like some site xxx.in sends to yyy.in some information,mostly if suppose xxx.in is a shopping site and yyy.in is the online banking site where in which a user has a bank a/c.
    So the cost of the product can be manipulated in the POST header and I've heard it is encrypted in base 64 which is quite easy to decode.

    Please help me out

    Thnx in advance
