I got reply from the staff.

Dan, can you confirm that you used my link?

I will ask Sebas to check this thread too.

Yes, I joined through this link:

http://www.planet-traffic.com/?5006

Then I clicked on the "Affiliate Program Earn
up to $35 per Sale" link on the menu and filled out the form.

I just did as instructed in the support ticket that I sent to him even before I joined:

If you haven't showed up in Venkat's downline, I really doubt this works..

It's actually not how it is supposed to work from the programming point of view since we're talking about PHP..

On the other hand, it's not impossible to implement, however if they actually made it to work like this, it could even prove to be a vulnerability for the site's security..

You can see how the ticket tracking is correctly set up: ?track=DMN-N5G-AU3B
..as it follows the proper pattern: ?key=value

The proper way is to capture the "key" as the variable name and then collect the "value" that is assigned to it, and use them in the code.

If they pass the value as a key, it would be easy for a hacker to pass "something fishy" in the system this way and use it as a tool to extract information.. and it should be concerning because the site requests a lot of sensitive info such as the address and phone number of the user.  Undecided

Let's just wait for their reply to the ticket..

I heard from the admin:

Hopefully we don't have to wait too long

Venkat,

Sebas claimed that he fixed it and I'm now in your downline. Could you please check? Thanks.

Still it shows zero.

I'm so concerned whether SS too has to go through this. Smiley

SS,

Would you be willing to join under me in a different program to make up for it?

If you want, you could still also try to join under Venkat in Planet Traffic?

If they confirm it works I will join under you in Planet-Traffic..

Since they can find this thread through their support system, I should bring this to their attention for security purposes..
Taking it one step further, in testing how the PT referring system works, take a look at this..:

When the link is: http://www.planet-traffic.com/?5006

The string of characters passed after the questionmark (?) gets parsed and then saved to a variable called id that is hidden in the registration form and will act as an input for the referrer field in the database.

So, after testing a few patterns to see how the unwanted characters are dropped out there is a pattern that escapes the check which for example can be the following..:

http://www.planet-traffic.com/?(5006)OR(1)OR(2)OR(3)...

In this case I could enter an unlimited number of IDs and it seems to be passing the checks before being saved as the id variable value.
So, if one opens the following link and proceeds to the registration page the id variable will show up like this :

...

As you can see the whole pattern has been saved as the referrer's id and if one proceeds to register the system will probably add that line to a database query that normally looks for the id of the referrer and assigns it to the referral or the opposite (assigns the referral to the referrer).

My point is that if this isn't prevented by further security checks the referral will end up joining in up to everyone's downline blowing up the system..

I haven't tried it because I don't want to mess anything up, I'm just bringing it up for the admin to notice and check it as a potential danger of the site.

In that case the query would fetch and return the first matching row / value and place the new joining person under that referrer. Is that correct?

Sebas says something about cookies. What will happen if someone has disabled cookies in browser?

If the link is not working as we doubt, again even if SS signs up with my link it's going to be the same. So we have to make sure if the link works. If it works, SS can very well use Dan's link.

I can't say anything. Hands down

@SS... what I think is, you can sign up using Dan's link. Let's hope it works. Hands down

Another good question is are you willing to purchase any advertising?

SS, what do you have in mind on what you'd like to purchase in there?

If the link is not working as we doubt, again even if SS signs up with my link it's going to be the same. So we have to make sure if the link works. If it works, SS can very well use Dan's link.

It is based on how it's designed to work.. if the system is designed to use only the first row of the results, it may work.. however if the system is fully dynamic then it would sign up the referral under all ids.. which could mess everything up..

When you load the page with your referral link, the system stores the id value in a session cookie that is stored in our browser.
Then when we click on the "Affiliate Program Earn up to $35 per Sale" link to browse to the registration page, the system loads that value from our browser.. so with cookies disabled the value will be null.. cause the cookie will not get stored.. So the member will join un-referred.

@Dan, I don't have plans on purchasing advertising there for now, but there is a probability for the future.. so I can't promise anything right now.
Anyways, I'll try to join under Dan and see if this even works as intended. I'll use a private browsing session so there's no need to worry about cookies not being clean or sth.

So, I've used Dan's link:
http://www.planet-traffic.com/?5029

And my ID is 5033.
Dan, can you please check your downline for an update?

SS,

It worked. You're in my downline now. Although they don't show the ID number. But since I've not been promoting the program, it must be yours. Also, the timing of your post and the notification of the sign up e-mail I received afterwards.

FYI, I'm going away for 5 days and will probably not have access to the forum till next Monday. So I'm going to have to set this aside for now.

My Downline count shows 0 in first level and 1 in second level.

Since it was manually done, I think the script didn't update the count. (There should be a column for that, instead of counting in real time.)
