confirmtransact.cgi is used for confirming that a particular transaction was successfully registered on the DIBS server, and the payment authorised. This may seem superfluous, however, as the accepturl can be called directly, an order in your web-shop could be made without a customer going trough the process of authorising an actual credit card payment.  An alternative to ensure that the a transaction has not been tampered with is to use the MD5-key control
