Default Broken exhaust -- options?

Hey all, tracing down the source of the rather loud exhaust on my '02 WRX yesterday and found this:

It's completely separated, just dangling there. This is, I believe, just after the cat toward the center of the car.

I've done a lot of work on the rest of the car but never on the exhaust system. Would someone be so kind as to tell me what my options are?

It looks like the flange on the post cat pipe broke or rusted to hell. You should be able to get away with buying a cat back.

Take those bolts apart (or cut them if you have to) and see what's left of the flange on the cat. hopefully it's still good. If it is good, it's time for a new cat back. I have a tanabe super medallion for my 02 you can buy. It's stupid loud, but some people are into that sort of thing. PM me if interested
