I've thought for a while now that browsers probably shouldn't allow POST requests for another domain (especially scripted ones). Unfortunately that would break lots and lots of web applications so the chances of it being implemented are somewhere around zero.

One thing that might help a bit is to set up your webserver to prohibit POSTs that don't have a referer header from your trusted site(s). I'm pretty sure there's a way to do that in apache.

As far as I know you a malicious site can't fake a referer header* (unless maybe if you allow cross-site XMLHTTP - but all modern browsers prohibit that - right?)

Good suggestion on the tokens, by the way.

    [Corion]: marto: Oh, I'm jealous. I'm going to see DM in Frankfurt, but it's a stadium full of people, so, rather a big thing where you mostly get to see the band on screens ;)
    [marto]: yes, the last time I saw them was in Berlin a few years ago, at the old Olympic stadium
    [marto]: After Sunday I don't think I'll go see them again :)
    [LanX]: Corion: come on, people are people! ;)
    [Corion]: Naah, I think it's still an OK show so far. Their new songs aren't exactly great, but I'm not going there for new material anyway ;)
    [marto]: I got the feeling from the last show that for big sections of it, they were not really into what they were doing
    [Corion]: LanX: Sure, they can bask in my Halo
    [marto]: more so than the previous show I saw
