poison.txt?

Post by k1ngp1n »

I found a file in my client's phpbb folder with a poison.txt file with a bunch of webpages listed in it. any ideas on what this is? all i could come up with on google was that it might have something to do with avoiding web cache poisoning?

What does the client know about it? He does know you're digging through his personal stuff, right?
