Re: errors in ccsfg

Some ideas for security would be to have a CAPTCHA type box to confirm it is a human doing the updating, this prevents malicious bots or scripts from poisoning your list.  We actually send an email for any update profile request with a unique link to actually update their preferences.  This way, whenever someone requests an update, they must confirm it's really them by going into their inbox, clicking the link and then updating preferences.  For obvious reasons, we couldn't build that into the CCFSG widget as we can't account for all of the ESP platforms out there when created the email out.

You can get a copy of CCFSG that will update existing Contacts.  This can be received by emailing webservices@constantcontact.com to get the modified version.  Please be aware, this modified version does NOT include any user verification.  This could result in anyone updating someone elses preferences.  Please see my previous post for how you could some security features if you are concerned that this could be a problem for you.
