    Exclamation "Check if Already Posted" with special string in title triggers Forbidden

    I just entered the title for a post. The full title:
    exec >./test
    Then I clicked the button of "Check if already Posted" right beside the title field.
    Post url:
    https://ubuntuforums.org/search.php?...ss&forumchoice[]=331&titleonly=1&query=exec%20%3E%20./test
    For some reason the server wasn't happy with what I entered and returned a Forbidden page:
    Forbidden

    You don't have permission to access /search.php on this server.

    What if we could adjust the clock, making a day of a virtual AI world much shorter than ours?
    What if a virtual AI being could spend its whole long life in a blink of our eyes?

    Re: "Check if Already Posted" turns out to be Forbidden on Ubuntuforums

    Can you please start the thread you intend with a more meaningful title. See the Posting Guidelines

    As for the the issue you're getting, the culprit is the exec >./test part of that string.
