Description

Getting: http://www.xxxx.com/blog/wp-admin/post.php

403 Forbidden
Access to this resource on the server is denied

When using this text phrase in a blog posting: "psexec -i -s cmd.exe". If I leave off the e and make it "psexec -i -s cmd.ex", Wordpress will let me save the posting as a draft. I guess it thinks I'm trying to do something bad?

Most likely it triggers some overzealous security rule on your server. Please try the support forums for troubleshooting: http://wordpress.org/support/.
