if someone stops you on the street and ask you 100$, is it illegal?
nope, you just ignore him or answer no.
that's what HFS does.

people scans web servers searching for bugs.
it seems HFS is quite safe.

HTTP is a text protocol
just connect to the server with your telnet client and type what you want...
