    Again,

    I am looking for how to make the code not vulnerable, and WHY it does so.

    Refer to my posts #6, #8, and #18, then match up my statements to my code in post #30. The "why" is all there.

If they do, I ask them to find the smallest example that exhibits the problem and send me that. Mostly, they then find the error themselves. "Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.

    Nope... you didn't asked to make it safer. Your words (post #1): "...I need to understand how to make it not vulnerable to these attacks..."

    To undestand something you need to know WHY!
    And laserlight already answered your question and even post a code making it "not vulnerable".
