In a penetration test, audit asks us to cancel searching with asterisk (*).

Audit says if a attacker tries searching with asterisk again and again, it makes the system unresponsive.

Could you please handle us how we can cancel searching with only asterisk character (but additionaly we should be able to use astersik character for searching with another letter or number in front of or behind the asterisk)?

Best regards


10 |10000 characters needed characters left characters exceeded

Perhaps if you told us which software/systems you were searching in we might be able to help more.
