Change other user's details

Postby mariofau » 3:43pm, Wed 05 Dec, 2007


If user A tries to change his address to the one of user B, he gets a link to user's B preferences.

That code is line 380 in admin/subscribelib2.php

<br>Click <a>here</a> to request your personal location");

I do not like this possibility as well and consider it a security issue. Phplist handles it using passwords.
I did not like to enable it, but found an easy workaround just by commenting out some code after line 91 in index.php:

Code: Select all
# Do not want access to user data just when giving email
#} elseif ( isset($_GET["email"])) {
#  $req = Sql_Fetch_Row_Query(sprintf('select subscribepage,id,password,email from %s where email = "%s"',
#    $tables["user"],$_GET["email"]));
#  $id = $req[0];
#  $userid = $req[1];
#  $userpassword = $req[2];
#  $emailcheck = $req[3];
