    For security purposes, they didn't want to open the website to the public internet. That opens them to security risks like worms & buffer overflow attacks. This way only trusted client machines can open browsers to their site.

    Seven years ago I worked for a fairly huge place that had an entrenched beaurocracy which could not and would not change. I needed to run a queue to another place, so get a T1 line, add a router at each end in the DMZ, do some configuring and voila! The SA's had never run an external router before and refused to do it. They insisted we had the other place install (and maintain) a router in our DMZ.

    Maybe those same folks now work for this restaurant: we don't want to support this complicated world wide web thingy; instead, since we already let ourselves log into our internal computer systems, let's let the external users just log onto our computers and have internal access instead. What could be simpler?

    Oh I'm sure the user Ludovico logged in with isn't an admin, therefore he couldn't do much other than run that app. It's an extremely secure setup.

    It's a great idea to rely on Windows's built-in security.

    Anyone stupid enough to think this was a good idea is certainly stupid enough to make the public, password-less (I didn’t think Windows would even let you do that) user an Administrator.

    So THAT'S what happened to Pippy Longstocking. She's become a model!
  • Tomski 2012-05-08 11:46
    I had a similar experience when my brother asked me to do some IT maintenance at a new company he had just started working at.

    I noticed that there was an RDP rule on the router that went straight to their Domain Controller. When I entered the websites domain name into the RDP tool from the Internet it went straight onto the DC. Ok, you did need a login to actually gain access to anything, but still not a very good idea!

    I remember working on something similar. It wasn't public but it was a Java application running on a server to which VNC was used to connect from the different terminals... at least testing was easy.

    BTW, why did the poster hide the "Powered By " part? I want to know! The truth is out there!

    Yeah, you're right...

    I'm sure this is a simple VB6 app which generates an HTTP Post request to an internal-only website, which then scrapes the resulting response and populates another HTTP Post with your data, which is saved to an MS-Access "Database". Then some customer service drone prints the MS-Access driven web-page with your information, takes a picture of the printout and faxes the picture to the restaurant.

    Hey, you're not crossing state lines, so at least the FBI won't get involved. It'll just be the local sheriff and some deputies busting down your door looking for the dangerous hacker their kids' principal told them about.

    Me, I'm much more afraid of my local sheriff and the little shooting rampage his officers have been on than the FBI, whose agents have to file a whole bunch of paperwork every time they draw their guns.

    Hey, that place is in my neighborhood. Not far from Trax Farm. I'll have to stop in and give them a hard time. Small mom and pop shops usually have minimalistic websites. I'll take that over a remote desktop ordering system any day! I'm still amazed at that RDP solution. Might as well give me root access to a bunch of Linux boxes too... I wouldn't mess with those either. I promise.

    This is why I *LOVE* my Firefox Web Developer toolbar, I get to say "What animated gifs?" because I have that disabled by default. That website is already horrible enough without animation!

    "Local businesses" should all pick a good CMS or other prebuilt system and stick with it, for the exact same reason most programmers should not implement their own GUI system from scratch.


    Jesus, it's 2012. If creating a fully functional restaurant website (with no programming knowledge) takes more than a couple of days, things are wrong (no I've never tried it).

    This site is better than many corporate sites. You can see what the site is about, the address and the phone at first glance, the different sections are on top and clearly visble, and you can find the full menu at a single click. Only real problems are background color and that the picture takes a while to load.

    I would -partially- contest that: there are a lot of people like myself, who use a text editor to author their web pages, and whose sites, like mine, therefore look less like they're from the mid-90s (crappy animated gifs and bad layouts), and more like they're from the mid *80s* (nothing but black text on white backgrounds, not really taking that big advantage of the 'm' part of html, cause I, I mean they, can't be arsed to.)

    Personally, I get the feeling that the designer/programmer (who I will call Over-His-Head Harry) was the owner's cousin.

    Harry volunteered after hearing about his poor uncle's need for a order management system quickly pirated an outdated textbook which taught him how to use VB6. Harry felt confident he could get it done in a weekend.

    A couple of months later, the first version of the program was ready. Customers could call in, place their order and the staff would just enter it into his 'BicroSoft Ordering System XP' (what a clever name, huh?).

    "But..." asked Harry's uncle "how do customers log in?"

    Panicking, the Over-His-Head Harry added user account functionality, bashing it into the already overcomplex system backend. Proudly, he showed 'BicroSoft Ordering System XP SP 1' to his uncle, this time having learned from his mistake- not spending enough time making the graphics flashy enough with stolen artwork.

    "Very nice, very nice. Good work!" his uncle praised. It ran fine on his PC and he was glad to be done with the long overdue project. Soon the software was installed on an old Pentium 3 system Harry's uncle had kept in his garage and was ready for use.

    Happily, Harry went back to playing Call of Duty "competitively", trying to enjoy the last of his summer break before having to go back to school and start his year 10 education. Boy was he in for a shock when he was called at 6AM early one morning...

    "Hey, uh... how do the users log in?"

    The rest, I believe you can work out.

    Well at least they were smart enough to not give any real permissions to the user account you log in with. I wonder how long until someone figures out the Administrator password?

    It looks like they've been running since 2006, and it's actually an Intel Celeron 2.66GHz. Only 1 GB of ram, so yeah maybe not much better than a P3 anyway.

    However, even with the regular user account they conveniently provide you with access to their database administration tool (this GUI is a major WTF in itself) where you can access (and possibly change? Didn't dare to try) their data...

    It probably survived because if you did try, you'd find out that you cannot log in as admin, you can run / modify anything that causes any actual harm, most of the customers use Windows and the thing is low-profile enough that the RDP vulnerabilities got patched before someone thought of exploiting them.
    Not saying this isn't a WTF though.

    Yeah, you're right...

    I'm sure this is a simple VB6 app which generates an HTTP Post request to an internal-only website, which then scrapes the resulting response and populates another HTTP Post with your data, which is saved to an MS-Access "Database". Then some customer service drone prints the MS-Access driven web-page with your information, takes a picture of the printout and faxes the picture to the restaurant.

    Nice and simple...

    You forgot the wooden table. ;-)

    I don't think this a WTF. This is standard practice on an embedded system, since you can't install IIS to host the website.

    "Local businesses" should all pick a good CMS or other prebuilt system and stick with it, for the exact same reason most programmers should not implement their own GUI system from scratch.


    Jesus, it's 2012. If creating a fully functional restaurant website (with no programming knowledge) takes more than a couple of days, things are wrong (no I've never tried it).


    It all depends on what you want. If you want generic crap, all the fake devs out there can do it for you in a day with joomla or whatever.

    If you want a robust long term solution with bleeding-edge tech and a real badass css, I don't think they can do it for you, even in a few months.

    The thing is, if the end result is going to suck, start with a suck factory like joomla or drupal.

    On the other hand if you have a real budget and very high goals, yes it will take more than a couple of days, and it will be infinitely better too, cuz joomla and other toys have been written by noobs, for noobs.

With the new site's (beautiful, but so what) interface, it's very hard to know if I've looked over everything -- a process which now requires lots of clicks.

    And the winner for the worst restaurant web page of all time goes to a little pizza place in pittsburgh. Good pizza if I remember correctly(I moved a while ago).


    www.angelfire.com/pa2/pindan/franks.htm

    whenever I look at this site I always hear the sound track from Monty Python and the Holy Grail opening credits after the llamas take over.

    This might not count though since they have recently replaced this site with something far less ghastly at http://www.frankspizzaandchicken.com/


    Wow, wow, wow. I thought I'd gotten through all the badness. Then at the very end...

    This gives me a brilliant idea! Instead of writing some complex, messy ordering system, just let the users log in to Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio. Then tell them to write INSERT statements against our database to create their orders. Simple and efficient!

    I wonder how long was this abomination up and running. I can't imagine it would be kept alone by local naughty techies for more than a few days...


    The local techies probably repair it remotely every time it gets owned so they can order their lunch.

    And noone thought about leaving pics from goatse or other nasty sites as the desktop background the next user would be faced with?

    Yep that site is not going to generate sales - on the contrary.

    Reminds me of this fine local website. Pizza isn't half bad, but the website makes me want to vomit. It looks like it used to have some Front Page extensions at one point, but I like that the even the page titles are wrong.

    Yes, apparently the whole "everybody-logs-on-your-server-via-rdp" concept it's the basis of their flagship product.

    Incredible.
  • jugis 2012-05-10 11:48
    Hey they don't happen to also have a "client list" on the website, do they? Not that I want to log onto anyone else's server via RDP....ummm, no I'm just curious, yeah yeah that's it. <evil grin>

    They're a mixed bunch, some of whom are very good indeed. I've been fortunate to never meet any who are as bad as the perps who did this WTF though…

    Making it in Linux would be cheaper, safer and more effective. You could even provide the user with XML config files for basic ingredient sets.

    ssh tom@italian.pizza.it
    cd ~/pizza_menu
    sudo order -crust thin -sauce tomato -double-cheese -f hawaii_ingredients.xml -t now


    Still, this case SCREAMS for an Enterprise Java application with lots of config files and classes like EnterprisePizzaFactory or TomatoSauceAdapterBuilderFacadeFactory

    And convection over convention, if we're baking pizzas.
