|Deciphering keywords from refer(r)ers|
when everything is hex
| 4:27 am on Jun 7, 2001 (gmt 0)|
I got this as a referrer:
http:*//search.aol.com/redirect.adp?appname=QBP& query=%fd%8f%58%de%95%9b%21%0a%38%aa%ed%1d%22%ee%c9%29%22%31%29%f7%3a%17%..blah blah blah
on one of my sites.
I use a custom perl script to report referrers and keywords from SEs. I can't do it with this. If it can't be interpreted the script leaves it alone (and really screws up my graphs)
These are obviously to me all hex numbers, however, many lie above %7f, and some below %20 (control chars).
Can anybody point me in the right direction as to how to interpret this string?
[Edited because I didn't realize that this redirected to a site.]

You need to find a Hex-Ascii chart Bob.
There are many sites that are starting to use that type of encoded url string.

:) I'm a walking Hex to ASCII converter!
I already converted it, it seems encrypted however. Anybody know how to decode it?
