Yes and no. HTTrack, by default, follows all links on 
sites. If there are unprotected links such as 'delete this 
page', httrack will follow them -- and the server will 
delete the content.

But this is a serious design bug on the content management 
system: invariant URLs (URLs that cause content to be 
modified) MUST be POST actions (not followed by robots such 
as httrack, or search engines) and NOT regular links.
