Is there a problem with Pastebin?
The average DaniWeb member if not already au fait with Pastebin.com is almost certainly aware of something like it. A pastebin has become, for many programmers, a default tool in the coding box and for very good reason: it makes sharing large quantities of code very easy indeed. Of course, any pastebin is essentially just a temporary text store and that means any type of text, not just code; and it's here that the problems for pastebin.com would appear to start. The service has been branded "a major trading place for exploits and passwords" according to recently released research.
