    Hi,

    I used the short code method on a page. Without any word in the search field I clicked the search button. This generated a 403 forbidden page with the text:

    You don't have permission to access /?s=Zoeken+naar...&cat=0 on this server.

    The developer of the security plugin Bulletproof helped me with this issue and adviced me to alter the code in the file search-by-category.php

    //$SBC_settings['search_text']			= 'Search For...';
    $SBC_settings['search_text']			= 'Search For';

    Otherwise this plugin could be exploited.

    That is not a security vulnerability at all.
    It looks like it is mistakenly detected as a dangerous string by the BPS plugin because of the "...".
