In my crawl of online image delivery systems, i was alarmed to see how poorly one in particular was put together. No names here of course, but i do think its worth emailing the company in question *just in case* on Monday. So here’s a few ideas on what not to do..
- Keep your image catalogue in a freely accessible location using a well known protocol
- Leave the default WMS service running unsecured, with no restrictions. One 3000×3000 jpeg image comin right up … $0 and instant delivery to boot.
Now i can’t say Landgate is that foolproof either, but considering this online shop seems to be the “top 3″(?) in the states it certainly had me raising some eyebrows.
I will deny all knowledge if someone picks up on my clues
