There are some fixes around already. By fixing the LFI, the HTTP response status
won't be 200, so the script will not return a false positive.
It works if I switch out the string.match() with "==".
I don't know why, though!
That's because Lua string.match() method expects a pattern as a second argument
(not a raw string) and the special "-" character is interpreted as the Lua
modifier for repetitions. Thanks for cathing this.
