I have a very strange search/query anomaly that I detected after building my website using PHPRunner 5.1. Specifically, on the main page of my website "www.HashSets.com" you can perform a simple query to find known files (and MD5 hashes) that are associated with Microsoft Windows.
For example, if you want to know what files are in the "C:\Windows\System32" directory you could do the following simple search:
Select "Path or Directory" from the first pull down menu then "Contains" from the second pull down menu and then put in the entry box "System32" and click the "Begin Searching" button. The query will proceed perfectly and show you all files contained within a "C:\Windows\System32" directory and subdirectories.
If you add a backslash after System32 such as "System32\" it returns no search results at all.
Why is it that the back slash causes the query to come back false? Is there a specific query rule built within PHPRunner 5.1 that refuses to present the query results using a backslash "\" ?
I have added the backslash in the front of "System32" such as "\System32" and it works fine. Just putting it at the back end of the search term causes a failed query.
I am confused totally.
Thanks in advance for any insight,
