Is NS ready for this?

Post by luntrus » Tue Apr 13, 2010 8:31 pm

Hi forum friends,

Just stumbled upon a so-called "fun"site to turn normal urls into huge ones. It is not only fun but could also be abused maliciously.

Does NS protect us there under all circumstances?

What makes a redirector service which creates huge URLs any more 'dangerous' than a redirector service that creates tiny URLs?
I fail to see the point.
