> A few days ago some tool tried to find vulnerabilites by checking urls like /pageid=99999'
. This lead to dozens of exception reports like 
> Exception type: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException
> Message: Input string 'pageid=99999'' is not valid; the character '=' at position 7 is
not valid.
> This should either be a custom exception type, so it can be handled without parsing the
IllegalArgumentException message or it should be a 400 - Bad request, which would also allow
for a custom error page.
